CityCycle bike hire

""The CityCycle bike hire scheme is a key part of Brisbane City Council's plan to encourage more people to ride bikes more often and an integral component of Brisbane's public and active transport system. CityCycle is part of Council's plan to help reduce traffic congestion and ease parking pressures in central Brisbane. 

The CityCycle network conveniently links bus, train and ferry connections and is a great way to get around the inner city and nearby suburbs. With up to 2000 bikes and 150 stations located between University of Queensland, St Lucia and Newstead, CityCyle is a quick, affordable and fun 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. 

It's easy to join CityCycle with a monthly membership, including discounts for students. You can also try CityCycle with a casual pass, giving you access to unlimited 30 minute trips with a 24 hour period.
