CityCycle bike hire

CityCycle has played an important role in how our city moves for more than a decade with more than 4 million trips taken.

To deliver more modern travel options that meet the needs of our growing city, Brisbane City Council has announced the introduction of shared e-bikes and e-scooters, phasing out the CityCycle scheme over the course of 2021. Find out about the CityCycle decommissioning project.

Council’s e-mobility strategy is a key initiative of the Transport Plan for Brisbane – Strategic Directions (Transport Plan) and focuses on opportunities to encourage greater use of e-bikes, e-scooters and other emerging, sustainable e-mobility options.

The introduction of e-bikes and e-scooters, marks the next phase of transport in the city, and will enable residents and visitors to get around the city and surrounding suburbs using active transport, reduce the number of cars on the roads and give people yet another option to get active.

From 22 July, 800 e-bikes and 2000 e-scooters will hit the streets, operated by Beam and Neuron.

There will be some overlap where CityCycle continues to operate alongside the new sharing scheme for e-bikes and e-scooters.

To support the change:

  • CityCycle monthly memberships will be free (usage charges apply for trips over 30 minutes)
  • the CityCycle Call Centre will continue to operate its standard hours.

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. Monthly membership fees will be waived for existing and new members until the end of the CityCycle scheme (late 2021).This gives you access to unlimited 30 minute trips in a 24 hour period.
