Rideshare company Mevo offers free rides to those who want to be vaccinated against Covid-19 until the country reaches its 90% vaccination target.
The offer provides a $ 20 credit to anyone 21 and over, with a full New Zealand driver’s license, which is over an hour of driving in one of the VW Polo or T fleets -Roc de Mevo in its Wellington and Hamilton locations.
With the Mevo app, users can locate and unlock the nearest car and drive to a nearby vaccination center. When finished, leave the car in the flex area or assigned loop base.
Trips which do not include a point of departure or arrival, or which stop within 500m of a known vaccination location during the trip, will be billed retrospectively after the trip is completed.

The Mevo credit is valid for 7 days from the date of addition to the account to encourage the urgency required to immunize 90 percent of eligible people.
Founded in 2016 by Erik Zydervelt and Finn Lawrence, Mevo has a network of vehicles that members can pick up and drive as needed.
Mevo offsets all emissions related to its fleets at 120%, meaning members have a positive impact on the planet with every trip.
