Wheels to Work
Do you struggle to get to work because of a lack of transport or do you feel like you are missing out on opportunities because you cannot get to work?
We are able to offer you moped loans, interest free loans for a bicycle, personal travel plans and travel vouchers.
Am I eligible?
To be considered for the scheme you must:
- Have difficulty with transport which stops you from getting to work and;
- Live in the Staffordshire County Council area (this excludes Stoke-on-Trent) and;
- Be over 16 years old.
When assessing eligibility we will consider:
- Distance from the nearest public transport routes
- Availability of suitable transport options for work, shifts and training
- Attendance patterns
- Other relevant circumstances
What do we offer?
For a period of six months, the scheme will be able to provide you with a loan for:
- A moped
- A pair of gloves
- A helmet
- A jacket
- A chain lock
- Basic Compulsory Training
- Insurance and breakdown cover
You must have a provisional driving licence and pay for the running costs.
A £50 non-refundable deposit is required.
It costs £80 per month for the loan of the moped.
You are responsible for the safekeeping of mopeds and their running costs. In the event of theft or damage you will need to cover the £250 insurance excess.
The scheme can provide an interest free loan to purchase a bicycle over a six month period. This will assist you with being able to get to work or getting access to public transport for rest of the journey.
There is a £30 deposit required to secure the bike.
It costs £20 a month for the six month period.
