Escooter Hire to Explore Liverpool

The year-long pilot programme, a collaboration between Liverpool City Region Combined Authority and Liverpool City Council, will see Swedish-based e-scooter startup Voi first introduce roughly 50 of the carbon-neutral vehicles to the city for public hiring, with more to come as the experiment progresses.

Why should I participate and travel around Liverpool using an E-Scooter?

People want the transport network to be as cheap, quick and green as possible. E- scooters could offer residents and tourists alike a quick and convenient way to get around the city centre, as happens in many European cities

The  e-scooters will be available for hiring via a smartphone app beginning Tuesday, October 6th, and will be located at important locations across the city centre, including shopping and commercial districts, as well as near the University of Liverpool and LJMU campuses.

The vehicle will have a top speed of 10 miles per hour, but will be electrically limited to roughly five miles per hour in high-traffic zones.

Initially, the cars will be available to users only between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m., in accordance with national COVID-19 limitations on restaurant and bar hours. Only e-scooters used in the experiment are now permitted in Liverpool, with the usage of private e-scooters being prohibited in the UK.

Voi, Europe’s fastest-growing e-scooter firm with 45 cities in 11 countries, has an exclusive deal to provide scooters for the experiment. The business anticipates that the trial will result in the creation of 50 full-time employment.

Renting an E-Scooter

  • The cost of unlocking an e-scooter will be £1, plus £0.20 per minute.There will also be unlimited daily and monthly tickets available.
  • To rent an e-scooter, users must have a driver’s licence and be at least 18 years old.
  • Low-income people will be able to purchase discounted travel passes.
  • Voi will provide free online traffic school to local riders in exchange for incentives to complete the course.
  • To assist prevent COVID-19 transmission, all cars will be cleansed on a regular basis, and handlebars will be wrapped with Shieldex Copper-Tape, which destroys 99.98 percent of coronavirus on contact.

Since opening its doors in 1854, St George’s Hall has come to be recognised as one of the finest neoclassical buildings in the world.

Behind the grandeur of its impressive Great Hall and Concert Room – lauded by the likes of Queen Victoria and Charles Dickens – lay the depressing doldrums of the prison cells and law courts. The St George’s Hall Experience: The History Whisperer™ transports visitors to a time when this extraordinary building was the meeting point of both opulence and destitution. Just like this city, our History Whisperer, Livie, is full of heart, humour, emotion and dreams.

Radical Landscapes

9 - 21 August, 2022
Join us for Radical Landscapes, a major exhibition exploring our connections to the rural landscapes of Britain. Featuring works such as Ruth Ewan’s Back to the Fields 2015, an installation of live plants, and Jeremy Deller’s green neon Cerne Abbas sculpture, this show expands on the traditional, picturesque portrayals of the landscape, presenting art that reflects the diversity of Britain’s landscape and communities. Discover playful and political artworks which reveal untold histories from the last century and investigate themes such as trespass, land use and the climate emergency. Encounter over 150 works including key pieces such as Tacita Dean’s Majesty 2006, Oceans Apart 1989 by Ingrid Pollard and Anwar Jalal Shemza’s Apple Tree 1962. Radical Landscapes presents rural spaces as sites of artistic inspiration and action, and a heartland for ideas of freedom, mysticism and rebellion. It explores how artists have reclaimed the landscape as a space to make art for everyone, as well as unearth how the countryside has been shaped by our values and use of the land. The show will also consider the human impact on the landscape and ecosystems, by featuring works that reflect on the climate and its impact on the landscape including Gustav Metzger’s dazzling Liquid Crystal Environment 1965/2005 and Yuri Pattison’s sun[set] provisioning 2019. The exhibition comes at a time when the Covid-19 pandemic has made us all re-evaluate our relationship with the landscape, the accessibility of green space and the profound human need to connect and commune with land and nature.
