Train operator offering 25% ticket discount if you arrive at the station on an e-scooter.

Northern, the second largest train operator in the UK, have introduced a scheme at Liverpool Lime Street station that offers a 25% train ticket discount to people who arrive on one of Voi’s e-scooters. 

Similarly, passengers arriving at Liverpool Lime Street on a Northern service will be entitled to 25% off the cost of a Voi Day Pass. Any Northern customers that are new to Voi will also receive 15 minutes free hire once signed up to the app. 

Swedish shared-mobility giants Voi began operating in Liverpool in 2020 and operate in 13 other UK locations, including  Bristol, Cambridge and Birmingham. Across Europe the company are represented in over 100 towns and cities. 

Users must download an app and upload a scan of their driving license to confirm their age and that they own at least a provisional license. 

Emma Hughes, partnerships manager, UK & Ireland at Voi, said: ‘We’re really pleased to be helping people make their money go further by offering this discount scheme with Northern.

‘Using one of our e-scooters or e-bikes is a perfect way to travel to and from rail stations in Liverpool. It certainly beats sitting in traffic jams and, with zero emissions, it helps cut pollution and improve air quality in Liverpool.’

Chris Brown, director of Marketing Liverpool, said: ‘We applaud this initiative and partnership between Voi and Northern. Not only is this a great example of sustainability in action but using Voi is a great way of experiencing Liverpool – and Northern a great way of arriving and departing our city, which we would recommend ahead of using your car.’

Mark Powles, commercial and customer director at Northern, said: ‘We’re delighted to partner with Voi on this scheme. Anything that encourages people out of their cars and onto greener methods of transport should be encouraged.’

Voi were one of the five leading e-mobility companies who recently published a list of ten recommendations aimed at making it easier for cities around the world to integrate shared micro-mobility into their transportation environment.
