Georgina, Home Shopper for Major Supermarket
Job: Home Shopper for a major supermarket chain
Time as a W2W rider: 5 months
“I found out about Wheels 2 Work because my boyfriend was on the scheme. I was terrified before joining, but I knew that because of where we lived I needed an affordable and flexible way to get around so that I could get on better in my current job and work the hours they wanted me to without hassling friends and family for lifts. I had had some driving experience before in a car but had never been on a scooter. During my CBT it took me a while before I could take both feet off the floor but the trainers at Wheels 2 work were great and once I got going I loved it. You get a real sense of freedom when you’re riding your scooter. It feels completely different to driving a car.
"You get a real sense of freedom when you're riding your scooter."
Because of Wheels 2 Work we are both able to get out to work. With two incomes life has become much easier and more enjoyable. We can now do more things together as a couple and regularly go on little day trips on our scooters. It also means that I can get to some important, regular medical appointments so in a way it has also helped make me healthier.
"It's a real lifeline"
I would recommend Wheels 2 Work to anyone if you are willing to drive safely and practice. I have recommended the scheme to a couple of people who I work with who are struggling with getting to work on time because they don’t have their own transport. It’s a real lifeline.”
