Micromobility provider Voi has announced a partnership with Dublin Bus to promote sustainable transport across the Irish capital.
As e-scooters will not be legalised in Dublin until 2023, Voi’s first venture into Ireland will focus on the utility of e-bikes within Dublin’s transport network.
Throughout the 12-month pilot, Voi is providing 20 e-bikes for Dublin Bus employees to access free of charge with an exclusive Voi-4-Dublin Bus Pass. The employees can use the e-bikes to travel between depots or to the Dublin Bus head office on O’Connell Street, where Voi’s electric bikes will be displayed in the building’s on-street window.
“New technology is changing the way everything is done and transport services are no different. We’ve always prided ourselves on how we help Dublin thrive and this new technology is part of that and is also enabling new ways of doing things in Dublin Bus. We’ve been examining the area of mobility within the transport sector over the last 18 months and exploring markets in the UK and major European cities. This has resulted in the company being presented with a number of opportunities in different areas of mobility and we’re delighted today to launch this pilot project.”
To help Dublin Bus promote sustainable mobility and support its customers with their first and last mile transport options, e-bike usage will be evaluated throughout the pilot to provide invaluable insights into how micromobility can be used in the Irish capital.
By supporting Dublin Bus employees to adopt this active and sustainable mode of transport, Dublin Bus and Voi are providing sustainable, multimodal transportation options in Dublin.
“This partnership is going to work very well. We can learn a lot from each other and we already have. The industry is facing lots of challenges and changes in the future and we need to be drivers and leaders. And today, launching this scheme, demonstrates our capability to do that.”
The partnership between Voi and Dublin Bus could help reduce congestion and pollution within the Irish capital, building upon the Dublin’s BusConnects Programme.
