Opened in 2009, Travel Extra is conveniently located for disabled passengers travelling into Hull by bus, train or taxi. It serves customers from Hull and East Riding as well as those from across the country who visit Hull to go shopping, see friends and family and visit city centre attractions.
Around 200 scooters are hired out each month and for just £2 a day customers can use them between 09:00 and 16:00 to travel anywhere in an area covering St Stephen's Shopping Centre, Ferensway, The Museums Quarter, The Deep, Hull Arena, Kingston Retail Park and Hull Royal Infirmary.
As well as publicising the service and keeping membership records up to date, staff show customers how to operate the scooters - which travel at a safe 4mph - and oversee the maintenance of the battery powered machines, ensuring they are fully recharged after every hire.
