Micromobility operator Voi is supporting cycling accessibility charity Cycling Projects this Christmas by donating “golden ticket” rides.
The shared e-scooter provider is supporting Cycling Projects in its more than 50 Wheels for All centres, where the charity offers cycling tracks and bikes for children and adults with disabilities and differing needs.
When Voi riders in Birmingham, Bristol, Bath, Liverpool, Northampton, Southampton, Portsmouth, Cambridge and Oxford hire e-scooters that have been wrapped with golden festive cheer, the operator will donate the unlock fee for all rides completed to Cycling Projects.
Voi will also be offering ongoing volunteering services of employees to Cycling Projects, with a wide array of mechanics, logistics experts and mobility tech teams available to volunteer in the 17 towns and cities where the charity offers micromobility services.
“We are very excited to have made this connection with Cycling Projects, who have been serving people with disabilities and differing needs for over thirty years around the UK,” said General Manager at Voi UK and Ireland Jack Samler.
“We have been promoting inclusive transport for merely one year and so we have a lot to learn from the experts at Cycling Projects. We want to support and empower everyone to adopt active transport modes, and Cycling Projects have long led the way in this regard.
“A modal shift in transport can only be achieved by close collaboration between all low-carbon transport providers. As part of our pledge to be carbon positive by 2030, there are many more positive steps like this that we all can take in the industry to flick the sustainable and accessible switch.
“As well as the donations facilitated by our riders, we have been planning to grow our capacity for volunteering in the micromobility sector, and so we’re delighted that our collaboration with Cycling Projects will be for all seasons, not just for Christmas. However, if we can help facilitate a few more bikes being brought down the chimney this year, this will bring us plenty of Voi joy this Christmas.”
