Globally, many industries have been asked to halt work and quarantine in light of the Coronavirus pandemic. However, there are many industries including car rental businesses such as Green Motion that are still operating in order to support the workers of essential services. Governments worldwide have released information disclosing the industries that can remain open during this time of partial global lockdown.
The UK received this mandate last night (23.03.2020) following Prime Minister Boris Johnson's speech addressing the nation. Included within his speech was an appeal for the public to stop their use of public transport in order to slow the spread of the virus, but this didn't seem to stop commuters in the early hours of Day 1 in the UK lockdown.
Green Motion can offer rental services as a safe alternative to public transport for those still having to travel for work. Given the current environment, we are doubling our efforts and carrying out all the necessary measures to make sure you can travel safely and with peace of mind in our vehicles.

In the UK and most other affected countries, health, education and social care workers such as doctors, teachers and paramedics will continue to work. Similarly, public service employees like those working in the justice system and police will also be allowed to continue at work. Those working at food and product manufacturers as well as distributors will also continue to operate and aid delivery drivers who will continue to serve the public.
If you are employed as a key worker as established by the government and need an affordable, safe alternative to public transport, please visit www.greenmotion.com to place a booking, or enquire directly with the rental location of your choice. You can find the listing of all Green Motion locations here.
