Tees Valley Wheels 2 Work

Do you find transport a barrier for attending work or training?

  • Do you live in the Tees Valley?

  • Do you have a firm offer of a job, training course or college place or are already in employment which you’re struggling to get to?

  • Are you at least 17 years old?

Tees Valley Wheels 2 Work can support you to remove the barrier of transportation to access employment or training opportunities.

What is Tees Valley Wheels 2 Work?

The scheme is designed to provide an innovative way of overcoming transport barriers by hiring an electric motorbike to working age people in the Tees Valley for up to a six-month period, until a longer-term transport solution can be found.

How does the hire work?

An electric motorbike can be hired from the scheme for £30 a week or £130 a month to support eligible Tees Valley residents who are unable to access employment or training due to living in remote areas which are currently not well serviced by public transport links or who work outside of normal working hours.

Is an electric motorbike the best solution to my transport problem?

The scheme operates Super Soco CPx electric motorbikes. The Super Soco CPx uses ‘Twist & Go’ automatic gears, and boasts a top speed of 56mph, comparable to that of a 125cc scooter but with the benefit of none of the maintenance. It as an 80-130 mile range on a full charge, and it’s compact, removable, rechargeable dual battery system can be fully charged in 3-4 hours.

The batteries used by the CPx don’t require any special sockets like an electric car. The motorbike can be charged directly, or the batteries can be removed and charged at home or in a workplace.
