Communities around the world are dealing with the unprecedented challenges posed by COVID-19.
Our heart goes out to all those who have been affected by the current pandemic.
The health, welfare, and safety of our members and users are paramount to us during this moment. For this reason, we have created new programs and implemented extensive procedures based on the guidance provided to us by CDC, WHO, and Florida Department of Health.
We understand how consuming this situation is for those in the front line, putting their lives at risk for the rest of us.
Therefore, as a small token of our appreciation to these amazing heroes, Newt will now offer unlimited $1 rides to all healthcare providers and emergency personnel.* We hope to not only provide them with a convenient, safe, and reliable way to move around, but to also add a little fun to their arduous routines.
To apply, simply submit a copy of your facility identification card along with a valid photo ID on the My Account section of our App.
*Program expires 08/16/2020. Subject to approval.
Self Cleaning Handlebars
Our scooters now come installed with Self-Cleaning handlebars using NanoSeptic technology. NanoSeptic surfaces utilize mineral nano-crystals that reacts to sunlight, continuously oxidizing organic contaminants for up to 60 days.
Enhanced Cleaning Procedures
Our scooters are carefully sanitized daily utilizing products and procedures recommended by CDC. We have also increased the frequency in which our scooters are completely cleansed.
Protecting Our Team and Users
We are providing and requiring our members to wear masks and gloves while handling our Newts. We also encourage everyone at Newt to frequently wash their hands, utilize hand sanitizer, and comply with social distancing procedures.
We follow on a daily basis the recommendations provided by CDC, WHO, and the Florida Department of Health, making sure to update our policies and operations as we learn more about COVID-19.
Small businesses have been some of the hardest impacted by the pandemic.
For that, Newt will be working closely with local businesses and restaurants by not only promoting them in our app, but offering ways for them to adapt to the current situation by offering local delivery utilizing our scooters.
