Easytrip comes through for the Blood Bikes

An imminent threat to a voluntary blood delivery service in Ireland has been resolved thanks to the intervention of mobility solutions specialist easytrip, writes Brian Byrne.

The Blood Bikes organisation, whose volunteer motorcycle riders deliver blood to hospitals and medical centres across Ireland had been facing closure because of the impact of tolls on their routes.

But easytrip is now covering all their toll charges, both saving the group money and speeding up the delivery process because the riders no longer have to take detours to avoid the tolls.

All funding for Blood Bikes comes from private donations, and the group's very existence means that vehicles and personnel from emergency services are not taken out of service to do deliveries.
