Micromobility firm Voi has partnered with a road safety education company to offer training events across the UK.
Swedish e-scooter and e-bike provider Voi is now working with TTC group, which has more than 28 years of experience educating road usera.
As part of the new partnership TTC will host Voi safety training events throughout 2022, in the hopes of improving the safety credentials of e-scooters and e-bikes
Voi now runs micromobility rental schemes in 17 towns and cities across the UK.
Jack Samler, general manager at Voi UK and Ireland, said: “This partnership with TTC takes our rider safety skills training to a new level, with Voi gaining from TTC Group’s decades of experience delivering behavioural change for all road users, and providing TTC with the opportunity to enter a growing new transport sector.
“We look forward to growing our safety visions together, and continuing to offer best practice in responsible micromobility, that puts people first and creates safer and better cities for living.”
These training events will involve both off and on-road practical sessions, and participants will be provided with free helmets to use during the training, as Voi tries to incentivise helmet use.
The first event will take place in Portsmouth on Saturday 9th April, followed by events in Bath.
Jim Kirkwood TTC Group chief executive said: “We are delighted to be collaborating with Voi to develop and deliver practical rider skills training. This initiative fits well with our vision to protect people on the move regardless of their mode of transport, and our expertise in the provision of road safety training for vulnerable road users.
“Our partnership allows us to explore an exciting new mode of transport and help to shape the future of micromobility rider training.”
