Scheme launching November 2021
Transport for Greater Manchester, working in partnership with Manchester City Council, Salford City Council and Trafford Council, is launching Greater Manchester's first publicly operated, self-service, 24/7 cycle hire scheme in November 2021.
The scheme, which will roll out in stages, will see 1,500 bikes - including e-bikes, available to the public by summer 2022, with a public trial of 250 cycles launching on Oxford Road in November 2021.
Cycle hire stations, which will be placed across parts of Manchester, Salford and Trafford will typically be between 300-500m apart, ensuring that up to 198,000 residents are never more than a five-minute walk from a bicycle.
The scheme will be managed and funded by TfGM, on behalf of Greater Manchester Combined Authority, and operated on a day-to-day basis by Beryl, the experienced bike-share company which already works with other cities and regions including London, Watford, Bournemouth, Norwich and Hereford.
When the full scheme rolls out in the summer of 2022 it will be one of the largest docked schemes outside London, and will give hundreds of thousands of Greater Manchester residents and workers an affordable, convenient and quick way to get around.
