The Solihull Business Improvement District (Solihull BID) is a not-for-profit organisation, with a voluntary board of directors to represent the town’s businesses. The group works to improve and promote the town centre of Solihull. For the past 13 years, the work of Solihull BID has resulted in a reduction in crime, increase in footfall and the introduction of a thriving events calendar, such as the Solihull Music Festival.


The partnership arose from a mutual agreement between Veezu and Solihull BID to address the need to make travel easier for businesses and locals in and around Solihull.


Through its partnership, Veezu is sponsoring six events with Solihull BID. Marking its first event, Veezu will be the official ride partner of Solihull Music Festival on 20-23 June.


Veezu will be providing safe, reliable and convenient travel for festivalgoers for the whole weekend, with £5 off rides for event visitors and Solihull BID VIP Membership card holders. Rides can be booked through the Veezu app, available here.


Melanie Palmer, Chief Executive of Solihull BID, said: “We are delighted to have the established brand of Veezu join us as our official ride partner for our town centre events.


“We know how many people enjoy visiting Solihull for the calendar of iconic events and now we are able to offer tailored discounts for those choosing to arrive in style with a Veezu taxi. Great partnership working makes Solihull the destination of choice for fun and relaxation without the worry of or restrictions of driving. Now, bring on the sunshine.”


Letitia Young, Hyperlocal Marketing Manager for Veezu, said: “We are very excited to be the official ride partner for Solihull BID and the Solihull Music Festival. This partnership further marks our commitment toward strengthening our ties with the local community in Solihull. We are especially proud to be playing a part in making travel easier for Solihull locals, and ensuring that more people can enjoy the fantastic events taking place in the town. Keep an eye out for us at future Solihull BID events.”
