Giants by #citybike
Get around Liverpool to see the giants by citybike, Liverpool’s new cycle hire scheme.
With locations across the city, including key ‘giant-spotting’ areas of Lime Street, the Waterfront and around the Georgian Quarter, citybike will be the largest cycle hire scheme outside of London with 1,000 bikes in over 100 locations by 2015.
Joining citybike costs from just £3 for a day membership which includes two hours cycling credit or £9 weekly which includes four hours cycling credit. Extra time can be topped up at £1 per hour. The best deal for regular users is to buy an annual membership for just £60 and enjoy half an hour’s cycling as many times as you want for free – that’s just over £1 per week to cover all your local trips around the city. Five hours additional cycling credit is also included to cover longer journeys and extra top-ups can be added anytime.
Getting started is as easy as 1-2-3 - register at www.citybikeliverpool.co.uk or call 0151 374 2034, choose a membership option and a top-up if you think you’ll need your citybike for more than the included time in your chosen member option; enter your code on the key pad, and get there by #citybike
Citybike is managed by Hourbike and is commissioned by Liverpool City Council using £1.5 million from Local Sustainable Transport Fund (LSTF), allocated by the Department for Transport (DfT).
