Beryl launches initiative to encourage sustainable transport
Beryl has announced that it is offering its users with 30 minutes of free riding time, as part of World Car Free Day on 22 September 2022.
The initiative ties in with Beryl’s aim of removing the barriers that prevent people from travelling more sustainably.
Beryl CEO and Co-founder Phil Ellis said: “World Car Free Day is a great opportunity to re-imagine our streets and focus them around people and a healthier environment. Our bikes, e-bikes and e-scooters are not just a fun, sustainable and cost-effective way to get around, they’re also a proven way to boost your physical and mental health too. Also, by switching all or even some of your car journeys to two-wheels, you’re also helping to reduce congestion and the amount of harmful carbon emissions in your area. With 30 free minutes on us, why not give us a try. It could change your life.”
World Car Free Day is championed in the UK by transport charity Living Streets, which suggests ways you can help support 2022’s campaign, and transform streets into a place for seating, cycle parking or cycle lanes, gardens, play areas or art areas.
People can hire a Beryl bike, e-bike or e-scooter through the Beryl app, available for free download on the App Store for iOS, and the Google Play Store for Android users.
This news follows Beryl’s recent announcement that its riders have clocked over two million kilometres in Norwich. With over a quarter of the overall journeys made in the UK city having replaced road transport journeys, Beryl’s micro-mobility vehicles have helped save nearly 76 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions from the atmosphere.
