Bolt launches ride-hailing service in Leicester

Bolt, the UK’s second largest ride-hailing app, has arrived in Leicester.

Bolt offers an affordable way to move around the city, eyeing a long-term plan to help build a greener transport network as the city commits to sustainability - with plans to build the UK’s first carbon-neutral bus station.

The service offers safe and affordable rides as restrictions start to ease, allowing people to travel to the shops, return to the gym or to dine at an outdoor restaurant.

Bolt is the fastest growing mobility platform in the world, with over 50 million users globally. With restrictions lifting on non-essential retail and outdoor hospitality in the next fortnight, Bolt will offer a safe, affordable and carbon neutral way of getting around Leicester.

This launch comes as part of Bolt’s UK expansion plan, with the service set to arrive in more cities across the country in the coming months.

Sam Raciti, General Manager - UK at Bolt, said: “We know people in Leicester 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 Leicester. With the city working hard on its sustainability, having recently received a £25m boost for carbon reduction programme, Leicester is a natural home for Bolt’s safe, easy and affordable approach to transport.”
