Following the lead of Lime and Pedal Me, who are offering free rides to and from Covid-19 vaccinations, micro-mobility operator Voi is offering £8 discounts.
Voi has already provided over 70,000 free rides to NHS and Emergency Services workers through its Voi 4 Heroes programme and is now offering discounts to all those travelling to vaccination centres.
To claim one, users need to have downloaded the Voi app from Apple’s App Store or Google Play.
They can then click on the bottom left of the Voi app and select ‘Free rides’ and then click ‘Redeem a Voucher’ to enter a promo code.

To be eligible, an e-scooter trip must start or end at one of the vaccination sites listed on the NHS website. The discount will run until the vaccination programme is completed.
Voi’s UK, Ireland, and Benelux general manager, Richard Corbett, commented: “As the vaccination programme is extended to other age groups, we want to make sure that people can make it to these really important appointments quickly and conveniently.
“Since we launched our e-scooter services in the UK, our focus has been on helping local communities adopt this carbon-neutral mode of travel, reducing traffic and pollution in the areas where we live and work.
“We are delighted to offer discounts to people travelling to vaccination sites, supporting this essential healthcare programme which will help us to get back to normal life more quickly and our towns and cities to recover.”
Voi is now operating in 17 UK towns and cities with further trials due to be announced.
Last month the firm unveiled its new ‘pollution-fighting’ e-scooter which measures air quality and noise levels as it travels through urban areas.
