Brisbane’s new CityCycle is almost here and Brisbane’s keen cyclists are getting excited.
You may have noticed new bike stations being set up around Brisbane, ready for CityCycle to get up operating by the end of this year.
For those who haven’t heard of CityCycle, it is a new public transport initiative for Brisbane, offering locals a public bike hire scheme to travel around Brisbane’s inner city.
I think it is a clever idea and would be great for those who work in the city. Imagine being able to easily travel to meetings across town or catch up with friends who might be at South Bank or at uni? It will certainly be a lot quicker than walking, but a lot healthier than catching a bus or cab.
Subscriptions for the CityCycle service open on September the 1st, and for those who are subscribed you can travel for up to 30 minutes on CityCycle for absolutely free.
The cost for a subscription is $60.50 for 12months and a hire charge will apply for trips longer than 30 minutes.
I can certainly see CityCycle becoming a popular mode of transport around Brisbane City, head to the CityCycle
website to find out more.
