Lime’s ‘Ride to Recovery’ scheme will offer Londoners free trips to and from their vaccine appointments.
It wasn’t all that long ago that Uber announced that they would be offering free trips to England’s mass vaccination centres, and it looks like popular e-bike company, Lime is now following suit. Lime have teamed up with e-cargo and passenger bike service, Pedal Me to provide free transport to and from the capital’s vaccination centres. Their Ride to Recovery initiative will give Londoners a code for four free e-bike rides which can be redeemed at any point this year. [Featured image: Lime]
Over 40% of London households don’t have direct access to a car and with public transport less appealing under the current circumstances, this scheme will provide a free and safe alternative to Londoners receiving their jabs. To cater to all needs, people will have the choice of either cycling independently to their local vaccination centres with a Lime e-bike, or using Pedal Me’s passenger bike service. And you can rest assured that both options are safe, sanitary and socially distanced.
Alan Clarke, Director of Policy and Government Affairs for UKIN at Lime said “We’re proud to be partnering with Pedal Me to provide free rides to all Londoners due to receive their covid jabs in the coming months. Our Ride to Recovery initiative will give anyone that needs it a safe, socially distanced way of travelling to and from their vaccine appointment. It’s an important journey and we want to make sure no one is left behind.”
