Wheels2Work scheme

The Wheels2Work scheme offers low-cost loans for electric bikes, pedal bikes and electric scooters, so that they can be hired from the city council’s Bike Park for up to six months.

The idea is to help people who have a job, training or education to get to, but no way of getting there. The scheme is open to anyone aged 16 or over who lives in Leicester, or anyone who lives in the county but the majority of their commute would be in the city. Self-employed people who regularly travel are also eligible.
