The bike rental company says its 'Ride it Out' programme is offering reduced rates on long-term rentals in place of a monthly metro card in a bid to reduce the transmission of the virus.

Unlimited CEO Hakan Ugdur says: "Ride it Out is based on the efforts that we have taken for our own team to help minimise their exposure relating to the concerns around Covid-19. Fortunately, our team has access to our fleet of bikes to utilise should they need it, and we wanted to extend the same opportunity for our entire community.”

Riders can take their bike home or pick one up and drop it off at any of Unlimited's locations within the three cities. Users will also be provided with a helmet and lock at no additional cost.
