FREE NOW, one of Europe’s leading platforms for multi-service urban mobility, renews its commitment in support and encourage “acts of random kindness” or those personal behaviors of attention and kindness which often benefit people unknown to us. On the occasion of the World Blood Donor Day, the highest expression of generosity, FREE NOW will guarantee a refund of the taxi ride in all the cities where it is present.
With this initiative, FREE NOW wants to facilitate all donors in reaching the collection centers and give greater protection to these exemplary fellow citizens by offering an alternative to a private car or collective transport to go to the collection points or return to their homes after the donation. As mentioned, this operation represents the continuation of a concrete commitment of FREE NOW which started in spring 2020 with free rides for health personnel and which continues today with free taxis for those who go to receive the vaccine.
The company, in fact, in addition to guaranteeing rides for donors, now that the entire population can access vaccines, confirms the extension of the initiative aimed at supporting those who go by taxi to vaccination centers, and that, for the whole month will they be able to continue to request the maximum refund of 15? for one or two rides aboard the FREE NOW taxi. The FREE NOW platform was the first to offer reimbursement for taxi rides to all priority groups established in the Italian government’s Covid-19 vaccination strategy. With the opening of FREE NOW to all age groups, it therefore extends the reimbursement of its service to an ever wider pool of citizens, which now represents almost all of the population.
“For FREE NOW this series of initiatives represent an honor and a privilege” says Andrea Galla, Country Manager of FREE NOW Italia, that continues “Being able to make a concrete contribution in coming out of the health crisis, being part of the solution and being able to encourage acts of pure generosity such as blood donation is something that makes us proud. The benefit of these initiatives is expressed at all levels and makes the world of taxi drivers a protagonist, a category that, despite having suffered particularly from the limitations to free movement, has distinguished itself for having always guaranteed the Public Service and operating at the forefront even in moments of greatest difficulty and fear for one’s health ”.
How to request a refund:
To receive the refund, it will be necessary to contact the company’s customer service and provide the receipt of the trip made with the FREE NOW App and a document certifying the appointment at the transfusion center.
