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.
