Changes to be made to Belfast Bikes pricing structure

A number of changes are being made to the pricing structure for the Belfast Bikes scheme from the start of the new financial year.

Annual membership will rise from £20 to £25, and three-day casual membership will increase from £5 to £6. The first 30 will remain free and there is no change of usage charges. A new “pay-as-you-go” option also is being introduced, at a charge of £1 for 30 minutes’ usage.

The annual increase equals rise of little more than a penny a day, from 5.48p per day to 6.85p per day.

These are the first pricing changes since the scheme was launched in April 2015, since when the number of docking stations has increased by 40 per cent.

Despite the increase in the annual and casual membership fees, the Belfast Bikes scheme remains one of the cheapest in Europe, compared to annual fees of £33 in Paris, £44 in Berlin and £90 in London. The pricing is also on a par with Dublin Bikes, which increased from €20 to €25 in February.
