Uber offers free electric bikes to NHS workers

NHS workers including doctors, nurses and hospital staff are being offered free rides on Uber’s electric Jump bikes to help them get to and from work in London.

NHS workers are being offered free access to the Jump scheme’s electric bikes

The scheme operates in the London boroughs of Camden, Islington, Kensington and Chelsea and Hackney, covering eight large NHS Trusts with tens of thousands of NHS staff.

Jump is working closely with councils across London to ensure that all NHS workers in these areas are able to benefit from this offer to help them to travel quickly and safely to work, without the need to use packed public transport.

Jump is also prioritising its service for NHS workers to ensure they can safely park the bikes near hospitals to ensure their journey to work is as easy as possible.

Dinika Mahtani, general manager, Jump, London, said: “Our brave NHS staff need everyone across the UK to get behind them and provide support however we can. From today JUMP bikes will be available for tens of thousands of NHS workers to use for free, helping them get to and from hospitals so they can continue their vital work.”

NHS staff can register at jump.com/nhs with their NHS email to receive their free activation code to use in the Uber app.
