Message from Local Go

Message from Local Go

As many of you already know, ArrivaClick has been operating a reduced service because of driver
shortages. The lack of drivers is an issue affecting many bus operators in the UK. Arriva are currently
recruiting more drivers for ArrivaClick, including contractors. However, the number of new recruits is limited and the overall number of drivers available to operate the service is not increasing as fast as we would like. Therefore, The Drummond Estate in conjunction with LocalGo, has decided to reduce the timetable from 06:00 to 23:00 Monday to Sunday to 06:30 to 20:00 Monday to Sunday. This change will come into effect from Sunday 17th October.

While this change remains in place, any resident of New Lubbesthorpe who uses a taxi for a journey
between the development and a location in the ArrivaClick operating zone between 20:00 and 23:00 will receive a £10 ArrivaClick credit voucher. They will be able to use when booking future journeys.

To receive your £10 ArrivaClick credit voucher you must email the following information to LocalGo.
1. Description of your journey (i.e. From New Lubbesthorpe to Leicester City Centre, date, start
time and number of passengers)
2. Copy of receipt from the taxi company used showing date, start time and destination
3. Your full name and address

Please send emails to info@localgo.co.uk

Coming soon will be further news on two new travel options for New Lubbesthorpe residents.
 Introduction of an Enterprise Car Club. This will provide hourly ‘self-service’ car rental.

Initially two cars will be available for residents to use. Upon registration with Enterprise via
LocalGo, each adult resident will receive a £150 drive time credit!

 Local residents who make a regular local journey, will soon be able to hire an E-Bike for free for a period of up to three months. The number of E-Bikes available is limited, so they will be restricted to people who can provide evidence that they are making a regular local journey.

New Lubbesthorpe Public Transport Update including details of new Car Club and Free E-Bike Hire

New Lubbesthorpe Public Transport Update including details of new Car Club and Free E-Bike Hire

Many residents will be aware that in recent weeks ArrivaClick has been operating a reduced service because of driver shortages. The lack of drivers is an issue affecting many bus operators in the UK. Arriva are currently recruiting more drivers for ArrivaClick. We are sorry for the inconvenience caused by the reduced service.

To help improve travel options for residents, the Drummond Estate in conjunction with LocalGo, are pleased to announce the following new initiatives during this autumn:

Introduction of an Enterprise Car Club. This will provide hourly ‘self-service’ car rental. Initially two cars will be parked next to New Lubbesthorpe Primary School for residents to use. Once public charging points have been installed in the Local Centre, these vehicles will be changed to fully electric vehicles. Upon registration with Enterprise via LocalGo, each adult resident will receive a £150 drive time credit!

Local residents who make a regular local journey, will soon be able to hire an E-Bike for free for a period of up to three months. The number of E-Bikes available is limited, so they will be restricted to people who can provide evidence that they are making a regular local journey.
The launch dates of these two new initiatives will be confirmed during October.

In addition to the above, LocalGo is discussing potential changes to the ArrivaClick timetable with Arriva to provide an increased priority for residents. Details will be confirmed as soon as these are available.

Further information of how you join the Enterprise Car Club or apply for an E-Bike loan, will be provided by LocalGo in future bulletins.

To access other travel offers, login to your LocalGo account by heading to www.localgo.co.uk/login. If you are unsure of your details or how to join for free as a New Lubbesthorpe residents, email newlubbesthorpe@localgo.co.uk for more information.
