European e-scooter and e-bike operator Bolt has announced the launch of its new ‘Bolt for All’ initiative, which aims to make micro-mobility accessible to all residents of Brussels.

In an effort to promote social inclusion, Bolt will now offer a 50% discount on the per-minute rate for all rides taken on scooters and bikes by students, job seekers and individuals that are dependent on one of the 19 Brussels CPAS (public social services centres) and are receiving a social integration income or its equivalent.

To avail this discount, users must reside in one of the 19 municipalities of the Brussels-Capital Region and meet the eligibility criteria mentioned above. They are invited to fill out an online form to apply, and must upload the necessary supporting documents to prove their eligibility, along with a valid identification document.

At Bolt, we firmly believe that shared mobility should be accessible to all, which is why we are launching this important initiative in Brussels,” said Marc Naether, Head of Public Affairs at Bolt Benelux. “We believe in creating a more inclusive city, where every individual has the opportunity to move around easily and at an affordable cost. This discount for scooter and electric bike rides aims to facilitate mobility for the most socio-economically vulnerable individuals in the region.”

The data and documents submitted will be processed by Bolt in accordance with its Privacy Policy. The Bolt team will review the applications within seven days and will confirm the users’ eligibility via email. Once the confirmation is received, the 50% discount will be automatically applied to the individual’s future Bolt scooter or e-bike rides.

Bolt is committed to facilitating mobility for all residents of Brussels and providing sustainable, convenient and affordable transportation solutions. This initiative marks another step towards a more inclusive city, where everyone can benefit from the advantages of micro-mobility.
