London-based shared micromobility operator HumanForest has formed a new partnership with food delivery company Deliveroo.
Under the agreement, which commenced on 12 January, Deliveroo riders gained access to a new and affordable payment model that encourages them to complete deliveries across London on HumanForest e-bikes.
Riders can gain access to the e-bike platform by purchasing bundles of minutes as and when they need them, addressing the upfront costs of privately purchasing e-bikes.
Currently, HumanForest has a fleet of 800 e-bikes across the capital, while it plans on launching the UK’s first fleet of shared e-mopeds later this year.
“This is a huge endorsement for HumanForest and a really important moment for Deliveroo riders,” said Laura Elms, Head of Sales and Partnerships at HumanForest.
“This partnership has been designed with delivery riders front and centre of mind, making access to affordable e-bikes a reality for them. The partnership will offer a sustainable and accessible platform that supports delivery riders whilst also bolstering our vision of a cleaner, greener world for all. We’re delighted to be working with Deliveroo and look forward to helping them achieve their own sustainability goals.”
Andy Batty, Director of Operations UK & Ireland at Deliveroo, added: “At Deliveroo, we are determined to do our bit to help protect the environment. We are pleased to partner with HumanForest to not only boost sustainable delivery in central London, but to allow riders to take advantage of more affordable, clean and efficient modes of transport across the capital.”
