CityCycle bike hire

""CityCycle, Brisbane's public bike share scheme, is an active and sustainable type of public transport that encourages more people to cycle around the inner city. CityCycle is part of Brisbane City Council's plan to help reduce traffic congestion and ease parking pressures in central Brisbane. 

CityCycle is a quick, affordable and easy alternative to short trips by car, public transport or walking.

Anyone who can ride a bike, and is over 17 years of age, can use CityCycle. Daily, weekly, quarterly and annual subscriptions are available. Student discounts are available for six monthly and annual subscriptions. For more information, visit the CityCycle website or phone 1300 CCYCLE (1300 229 253).

There are 150 CityCycle bike stations with up to 2000 bikes available across the inner city, from University of Queensland at St Lucia to New Farm. The network links bus, train and ferry connections and is a great way to get around the inner city and nearby suburbs.

24 hour access

In response to subscriber feedback, CityCycle is now available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The extended operating hours make CityCycle more accessible and encourage subscribers to take more trips across the network more often.

Courtesy helmets

Courtesy helmets are a great option if you want to take a spontaneous trip on CityCycle, but don't have your own helmet. Council provides courtesy helmets to many of the bikes at stations across the network, and subject to availability, you can choose a bike with, or without, a helmet.
