Waltham Forest council is offering its employees free hire of electric bikes to use for work-related trips. Ten e-bikes, supplied by Freebike, will be made available to staff during a one-month trial.

Staff can activate the dockless system by using the Freebike App/Staff card.

A council spokeswoman says: “Freebike will provide the council with usage data and we’ll undertake staff travel surveys with registered users to monitor journey modes.”

Councillor Clyde Loakes, deputy leader and cabinet member for the environment, said: “We are focused on improving road safety and air quality for all our road users. We’re trialling these Freebikes in order to enable our staff to carry out their duties in a healthy, sustainable and convenient way. Providing access to electric-assist bikes may be just the encouragement needed for some to consider changing their preferred mode of transport.”
