Voi has launched a golden ticket Christmas campaign to support inclusive cycling charity Cycling Projects.
Voi riders in Birmingham, Bristol, Bath, Liverpool, Northampton, Southampton, Portsmouth, Cambridge and Oxford will be able to seek out e-scooters that have been wrapped with golden festive cheer – Voi will then donate the unlock fee for all rides completed on these e-scooters to Cycling Projects.
The operator 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 they offer micromobility services, Voi sees this collaboration with Cycling Projects as an extension of its roadmap to create inclusive transport in the communities it serves.
At Christmas, however, it hopes to also spread just a little bit more of the Voi joy, showing that micromobility is a force for good, empowering communities and proactive in catering to everyone’s transport needs.
“We’re delighted to be working with Voi this Christmas to raise funding and awareness for our Wheels for All network,” said Ian Tierney, chief executive Officer for Cycling Projects. “This partnership will support disabled people to be able to have fun cycling in our Wheels for All centres across the country on trikes, handcycles, tandems and many more adapted cycles.”
Jack Samler, general manager at Voi UK and Ireland, added: “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.
“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.”
