Foodpanda released details of the e-scooter trade-in grant scheme from the government, becoming the second food delivery firm, following GrabFood, to release details of the grant for riders.
Terms for Foodpanda’s two-fold grant scheme include:
The first version covers riders who have completed 100 working hours delivering food from Oct 9 to Nov 7.
- Riders must trade in their e-scooters.
- Riders can claim their e-bicycles by Dec 31 (batch 1) and by Jan 2020 (batch 2).
- Riders can claim their e-bicycles at Foodpanda’s North Rider Hub at Woodlands.
The second version covers riders who have completed less than 100 working hours.
- Riders can choose to purchase their own replacement vehicle.
- Riders can then claim a reimbursement of up to S$600 for bicycles and S$1,000 for e-bicycles.
- Upon completing 100 orders by Dec 31, riders can receive half of the grant amount (either S$300 or S$500 depending on the device) then the next half upon completing 100 more orders by Jan 31, 2020.
As reported by Today, eligible food panda riders will receive an SMS on Friday (Nov 15) including a link to the sign up sheet for the application.
Riders will then receive confirmation after four or five working days.
Foodpanda added that all eligible riders can get free bicycle rentals from SG Bikes but need to pay a S$100 deposit first. Other bike rental partners include New Era Cycle and NSR Bikes.
