Bolt Operations Manager for Rentals in Ireland, John Buckley, spoke of the benefits for the local community and beyond.

Buckley said, “We’re very excited to take Bolt to Wexford town, and we’re working closely with Wexford County Council to roll out the service as soon as possible.

Bolt is a mobility firm that specialises in offering high-quality electric bikes, and besides Wexford, it also has existing operations in counties such as Kilkenny and Sligo.

The company offers excellent scooter and e-bike rental services across Europe. The service aims to replace the need for car trips with a more sustainable alternative.

The e-bike has an ergonomic handlebar and an adjustable seat to ensure maximum comfort. The e-bike also has a front basket to hold belongings, and its frame is built from 100% recyclable aluminium.

As the e-bikes are environmentally friendly, they come with a swappable battery ranging from approximately 90 km (55.9 mi) on a single charge. To ensure safety, the maximum motor-assisted speed is 25 km/h (15.5 mph).

Speaking of the council’s pride in offering this form of transport, Wexford County Council Cycling & Walking Officer Claire Goodwin said, “Wexford County Council is delighted to offer local residents and visitors a sustainable transport option in the town.

“We see a real enthusiasm for making the change away from private car use if there is a convenient alternative. With the introduction of Bolt’s e-bikes on a pilot basis into our town, we hope many people will change how they travel where possible”.
