Scoots, the Wheels 2 Work Charity in Hertfordshire, has formed a new partnership with specialist sustainable travel consultancy, Go Travel Solutions. The partnership will provide local employers and their staff with access to discounts on new moped and motorcycle equipment worth up to £112 per person through the Smartgo Stevenage travel network.

 

Scoots helps people in Hertfordshire over the age of 16, via the hire of a 50/125cc moped or motorcycle, to help them travel to work or on education placements. New and existing employers in the Smartgo Stevenage network will receive discounts on equipment including helmets, jackets, gloves, rain trousers and high vis clothing.

 

Smartgo Stevenage has been developed and is co-ordinated by Go Travel Solutions. The network is focused on delivering key benefits for businesses in the Stevenage area including: enhanced staff retention and recruitment; management of parking demand; reduced business costs; delivering carbon reduction; and enhancing business brand.

 

Ricky Moore, Project Manager at Scoots said: “With no minimum hire period, Scoots can help to save people both time and money whilst reducing their CO2 emissions. Prices start at just £5 a day to hire one of our bikes and this even includes breakdown recovery and fully comprehensive insurance. This partnership with Go Travel Solutions will help staff from local businesses to get themselves to work on two wheels by offering a range of great discounts on equipment when they hire a bike from us.”

 

Robin Pointon, Managing Director of Go Travel Solutions added: “Employers who are members of our Smartgo Stevenage network already have access to discounts and offers from the likes of Centrebus, Great Northern Trains, National Railcards, Sixt, Europcar, Eversure and Halfords. By adding Scoots to this list, we are helping to reduce car dependency and increase the awareness of the different options there are for travelling to work. In turn this will help staff save money, be healthier and more sustainable.”
