Bolt, one of London’s largest ride-hailing apps, has arrived in Milton Keynes.
Bolt say they are eyeing a long-term plan to help build a greener transport network as the city strives for major economic growth with plans for a new university well under way.
Bolt has more than 50 million users in over 40 countries across Europe and Africa. Its services range from ride-hailing to micromobility with e-scooters and electric bikes to food and parcel delivery.
A spokesperson for the firm has said: “With restrictions lifting on non-essential retail and outdoor hospitality in the next fortnight, Bolt will offer an alternative, carbon neutral way of getting around Milton Keynes.
“This launch into Milton Keynes comes as the platform also arrives in Peterborough, having had a presence in London since June 2019.”
Sam Raciti, General Manager - UK at Bolt, said: “We know people in Milton Keynes are desperate to enjoy their city again, to see loved ones and to support the economy. As lockdown lifts, we’re so excited to bring Bolt to Milton Keynes. With a history in tech and innovation dating back to Turing’s code breaking and innovators such as Red Bull and Santander investing in its future, Milton Keynes is a natural home for Bolt’s safe, easy and affordable approach to transport.”
