Partnering with Voi Scooters for their first transport collaboration in the UK.

Before working with Zipabout, Voi had several transport partnerships across other European markets - but this is their first transport collaboration in the UK. Through our First & Last mile feature, the addition of a Voi scooter option ensures that all train passengers are aware they can use a carbon-neutral scooter to complement their journeys. Ultimately, this will reduce the number of short car journeys, improving our cities air quality, starting to shape cities for a greener future.

In brief

With a shared vision to improve the way people move around congested urban centres, we worked with Voi to offer a clean, efficient, cost-effective and zero-emission alternative to short car journeys.

With sustainable transport a bigger focus than ever, there was a clear demand for quick, easy transit options; especially in cities where there is good public transportation and infrastructure.

Building and developing our personalised messenger service - and our First & Last Mile feature - to include the Voi scooter option for passengers meant that people had a wider variety of choice when it came to everyday travel. It also meant that travellers were able to make greener, more informed journey choices.

The impact

Micro-mobility has proven to be a lifeline during the pandemic. Many people, particularly key workers, used Voi scooters to move around in the open-air, while still socially distancing around their cities.

The pandemic confirmed that e-scooters are an essential part of a safe and sustainable transport system, particularly for journeys of 1-3 miles. As we head towards the green recovery of our cities and towns, e-scooters will continue to play a strategic role in creating better cities for all, free of pollution and congestion.

By offering an e-scooter travel alternative, more people have access to a green, accessible and safe alternative mode of transport. This partnership gives us an opportunity to influence regulations positively, with the aim of e-scooters becoming an integral part of city transport planning.
