REVEL ANNOUNCES FREE RIDES TO MIAMIANS TO SUPPORT COVID-19 VACCINE EFFORTS
Revel offers free electric moped rides for healthcare workers and employees involved in vaccine distribution efforts in Miami
Shared electric vehicle company Revel announced that it will offer free rides for administrators of the COVID-19 vaccine in Miami as well as in other markets across the U.S. where they operate.
Revel originally launched in Miami in December 2019 after being selected by the Miami Parking Authority (MPA) as Miami’s sole provider of shared electric mopeds. Revel’s Miami operations are conducted in partnership with the MPA to ensure the company meets local communities’ needs as best as possible.
The COVID vaccine program will support crucial workers as they travel to vaccine administration sites to do their jobs and will encourage the use of a socially distant form of transportation. Free rides will be offered to healthcare workers who are aiding in the vaccination effort in any capacity at any certified vaccination site, including doctor’s offices, hospitals, and city- and state-run vaccination sites.
“The success of America’s vaccination effort is critical and will impact all of our lives as we look to recover from this devastating pandemic,” said Frank Reig, Co-founder, and CEO of Revel. “We are proud to offer a free, socially-distant transportation alternative to healthcare workers who are administering the vaccine, and to do our part in the fight against COVID-19.”
Any eligible worker administering the vaccine at an approved vaccine site must submit their provider ID card (with title) through Revel’s Customer Experience team. Revel will then enable free rides for the duration of the program. No promo code is necessary.
“The Revel vaccine program is aligned with MPA’s commitment to continue to support the Miami community during the COVID pandemic,” said chief executive officer Alejandra “Alex” Argudin. “Since COVID was declared a pandemic, the Authority has implemented a wide range of initiatives to support the Miami community, including free parking spaces to help local restaurants with outdoor dining and a free hour of on-street parking as part of the Phase 1 Reopening in May.”

Revel is available to licensed drivers who sign up through the Revel app, which they can then use to find, reserve, and unlock the moped of their choice parked within the service area. All riders are required to take a 42-question safety training and watch an instructional video before their first ride. Each Revel can carry up to two riders, is limited to local streets, and is capped at a speed of 30 miles per hour.
Each Revel moped is equipped with two U.S. DOT-certified helmets that must be always worn. Revel requires all riders to take a selfie at the beginning of their rental to show that they are wearing a helmet. If a passenger is indicated, they are required to take a selfie, as well. Additionally, the company offers U.S. DOT-certified helmets for sale on its website for $35 (plus tax and $10 for shipping and handling).
Revel offers free, in-person lessons seven days a week for new riders and those interested in sharpening their riding skills. Lessons are held in all of Revel’s markets and can be booked through the app. All riders are covered by third-party liability insurance and are required to abide by all local traffic and parking laws.
