Wheels 2 Work Moped Hire

The Wheels 2 Work scheme operates in the districts of Ryedale, Scarborough and Selby and also includes the City of York.

What is Wheels 2 Work?

Wheels to Work is a moped hire scheme. It is for people who have difficulty in traveling to work, training or education due to the lack of suitable public or private transport.

If you struggle with a lack of public transport due to the remoteness of your home or because you work unsociable hours the Wheels 2 Work scheme may well be able to help you.

For further information about this service, please call the office on 01653 699059 or you can also email wheelstowork@ryedalect.org

How Does the Scheme Work?

We can hire you a 50cc or 110cc moped. We also have electric mopeds available. During the loan period, you are encouraged to save up for a vehicle of your own. You can use our mopeds for social trips too.

You will need a CBT certificate (compulsory basic training). We can also supply cut-price protective gear (helmet, jacket, gloves).
