The UK’s adoption of Voi e-scooters and e-bikes has led to a substantial reduction in carbon emissions
Since their introduction in 2020, these micro-mobility solutions have slashed over 4,000 tonnes of CO2, as revealed during TravelWise week, a prelude to the global World Car Free Day on September 22, 2023.
E-scooters and e-bikes are emerging as formidable tools in the fight against carbon emissions and urban air pollution. By supplanting short car trips, they’ve transformed urban mobility. In the past three years alone, Voi’s e-scooters and e-bikes have covered a remarkable 43 million miles. In the process, they’ve replaced an astonishing 10.3 million car journeys, contributing to a commendable reduction of 4,000 tonnes of CO2e.
Besides their environmental impact, these micro-mobility solutions have also proven their ability to cut commuting times by an impressive 47%. Simultaneously, they’ve alleviated traffic congestion, making city living more efficient and enjoyable.
Reducing car dependency and decarbonizing urban transport are not just local endeavors. They’re vital steps in the UK government’s ambitious plan to achieve net-zero emissions. This initiative is set to enhance the overall well-being and efficiency of cities across the nation.
Jack Samler, Voi general manager UK, Ireland and France, said:
“We aim to transform how people move in cities, freeing us from car dependency and reducing greenhouse gas emissions, working all the time to reduce the environmental impact of our value chain and operations in the process.
“This Car Free Day we hope to really encourage that shift and that’s why we’re offering free e-scooter and e-bike use, to encourage new riders to have a go and see how easy and convenient it is to make the switch.”
To further incentivize car-free travel during TravelWise week, Voi is offering a generous discount code, CARFREEUK23. This code allows users to unlock their next e-scooter or e-bike ride for free.
