Deliveroo x Humantra - Hydration Station

In an effort to support its delivery riders during the scorching summer months, Deliveroo has launched a series of initiatives aimed at ensuring their safety and comfort while navigating the city’s streets.

One of the key measures introduced by the food delivery service provider is the deployment of mobile hydration stations across major areas in Dubai.

These stations, branded with both Deliveroo and Humantra logos, will make scheduled stops at locations such as Hessa Street, Mirdif City Centre, and City Walk.

Riders are encouraged to visit these stations to replenish their fluids with Humantra’s rose-flavored electrolyte sachets and bottles of cold water, helping them stay hydrated during their demanding shifts.

“At Deliveroo, we value our agency riders and the indispensable role they play in our ecosystem. By introducing the Hydration Station in collaboration with Humantra, we aim to fortify our ongoing summer initiatives which include rest areas at Roo Buses, Editions sites, and HOP sites, as well as investments in our rider kits, and the organization of seasonal rider events,” said Yazan Aburaqabeh, Director of Operations at Deliveroo Middle East.

“Through our summer initiatives, we aim to ensure riders feel supported, hydrated, energized, and recognized as they navigate the streets this season.”

In addition to the hydration stations, Deliveroo is continuing its summer rider welfare scheme, which includes offering cooled rest areas aboard Roo Buses deployed across Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Al Ain, Ajman, Sharjah, and Ras Al Khaimah.

These air-conditioned vehicles and smaller coasters will provide shaded spaces for riders to take breaks.

Furthermore, the company plans to distribute water, juices, and additional reusable bottles to riders from June onwards.

Restaurants are being encouraged to supply water to riders, and customers may also offer water upon delivery.

Deliveroo will also equip riders with cooling vests, towels, and windshield visors for their bikes, ensuring their comfort and safety during the hot summer months.

The platform’s operations team will organize indoor sporting events for riders throughout the summer as well.
