Voi’s shared e-bikes receive CoMoUK accreditation

Voi’s shared e-bikes have been accredited by CoMoUK.

Earlier this year, Voi announced the launch of its e-bike trial in Cambridge, Peterborough and Kettering.

“We are very pleased to announce that Voi has been awarded the CoMoUK accreditation standard for their e-bike scheme in the UK,” said Richard Dilks, chief executive, CoMoUK.

“Our accreditation standard is an important way of providing reassurance on how shared bikes are managed on our streets and the standards that operators achieve across a range of measures. We look forward to working with Voi and all our accredited operators to ensure bike-share goes from strength to strength in the UK.”

Jack Samler, general manager at Voi UK and Ireland, added: “The CoMo accreditation guarantees our e-bike scheme continues to be a valuable component of sustainable transportation and complementing our shared e-scooter scheme available across the UK.

“While Voi e-scooters are best for short commutes of between 1-3 miles, e-bikes are more appropriate for slightly longer travel purposes, 3-9 miles or cycle in hilly areas, or just by allowing people to cycle without getting too tired or sweaty.”
