NotLost has partnered with Bolt, the leading European mobility platform, to help reunite 2 million London riders with lost items.

Bolt is the leading European mobility platform that’s focused on making urban travel more affordable, convenient and responsible. Bolt has more than 50 million customers in over 40 countries across Europe and Africa.

In London, Bolt has more than 500,000 drivers and 2 million passengers signed up.

Bolt has become the first ride-hailing operator in the UK to implement a dedicated lost and found system.

The objectives

Bolt’s London office recognised the need for improving lost and found management and operational efficiency while continuing to meet regulatory requirements.

Free up valuable staff time 

Bolt needed an effective, streamlined system that minimised the time spent handling lost property. They wanted to empower the customer care team to spend more time solving customer issues, whilst also alleviating inconvenience and frustration.

Comply with regulations

Bolt has regulatory and reporting requirements for TfL. Implementing a new process would ensure they continued to meet regulatory requirements, improve efficiency and maintain a best in class approach.

Improve rider experience 

As part of providing an excellent rider experience, Bolt aimed to reduce the time spent waiting to hear back about lost and found enquiries.

We needed a solution to the lost property problem that could be integrated and scaled across the whole UK operation in the future.
