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. It is an integral part of Brisbane's public and active transport system.

CityCycle helps reduce traffic congestion and ease parking pressures in central Brisbane. The network conveniently links bus, train and ferry connections. It is a great way to get around the inner city and nearby suburbs.

There are up to 2000 bikes and 150 stations located between University of Queensland, St Lucia and Newstead. CityCycle 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. There are discounts for students.

You can try CityCycle with a casual pass. This gives you access to unlimited 30 minute trips in a 24 hour period.

For more information, visit the CityCycle website or phone 1300 CCYCLE (1300 229 253).
