Dockless electric cycle hire firm Freebike - whose central London coverage area includes both Guy's Hospital and St Thomas' Hospital - is offering its service for free to key workers.
Key workers can email [email protected] for access to the scheme.
Freebike's coverage area south of the river stretches from Lambeth Bridge in the west to Rotherhithe in the east.
Freebike says that it is a small start-up company without access to "Silicon Valley billions" so it is running a crowdfunding campaign so that it can maintain and expand the free service during the crisis.
