Free EV charging for Uber Partner-Drivers during COVID-19 pandemic

BP Chargemaster is providing support to electric vehicle drivers using the Uber app who are transporting NHS staff.

Uber Medics is a new product in the Uber app which provides a 25% discount on rides to NHS staff and employees of care home organisations until mid-July. Uber will not make any money from these trips, while drivers will receive the same fares on Uber Medics trips as normal Uber trips. See more details here.

 

BP Chargemaster will add the equivalent credit of up to three quarters of a million miles of journeys* across all qualifying driver accounts*.  These drivers can then redeem the credit against their Polar Plus account’s electricity costs and is available to new and current Polar Plus account holders.
