Uber has announced that NHS workers including doctors, nurses and hospital staff will be offered free rides on electric JUMP bikes to help them get to and from work.

JUMP operates in the London boroughs of Camden, Islington, Kensington and Chelsea and Hackney, covering eight large NHS Trusts with tens of thousands of NHS staff.

JUMP is working with councils across London to ensure that all NHS workers in these areas are able to benefit from the offer to help them to travel quickly and safely to work.

“Our brave NHS staff need everyone across the UK to get behind them and provide support however we can,” said Dinika Mahtani, General Manager, JUMP, London. “From today JUMP bikes will be available for tens of thousands of NHS workers to use for free, helping them get to and from hospitals so they can continue their vital work.”

NHS staff can register at jump.com/nhs with their NHS email to receive their free activation code to use in the Uber app. NHS staff can receive a maximum of 50 redemptions with a cap of £10 per trip. In their Uber app they can change the transport mode from ‘Rides’ to ‘Bikes’ at the bottom of the main screen and see the available bikes on the map.
