Voi has signed the Armed Forces Covenant, a written commitment to recognise the value of serving personnel, veterans and their families.
The shared micromobility operator is giving the Armed Forces 50% off Voi’s monthly pass through its Voi 4 Heroes Pass.
This scheme forms part of the company’s roadmap to create a more inclusive micromobility sector.
Until now, the Voi 4 Heroes Pass has been for NHS and emergency service workers.
These passes have been very well received by UK communities, with more than one million people taking advantage of the discounted rides since Voi launched its e-scooters in September 2020.
Other daily and monthly passes available are the firm’s Voi-4-All Pass for riders in low income groups and Voi 4 Students, both of which give significant discounts.
The company is also committing to support the employment of reservists and veterans.
“Through this agreement, we will offer people who serve, or have served our country discounted rides with Voi, recognising their service to the nation, and we will be supporting them and their close family with career opportunities,” said Jack Samler, General Manager at Voi UK and Ireland.
“We know that many within the Armed Forces are already using Voi, and it was an honour to join Captain John Groves RA at Blighmont Barracks in Southampton to sign the Covenant and take our support for this community a step forward.”
Andrew Gibbs, South East Regional Employer Engagement Director at the Ministry of Defence, said: “On behalf of my Chief Executive we are very pleased that Voi has signed the Armed Forces Covenant and is showing their support for the Armed Forces community.
“Voi is joining many organisations throughout the UK in the public, private and third sector, who are quite simply giving their support to the Armed Forces, their families and Veterans.”
