About the scheme
Transport for Greater Manchester, working in partnership with Manchester City Council, Salford City Council and Trafford Council, has launched Greater Manchester's first publicly operated, self-service, 24/7 cycle hire scheme.
Hire bikes are now available from multiple stations across Oxford Road and the University of Salford – making cycling a real option for commuters, cross city travellers and students. The use of the bikes will be closely monitored and fed into the approach for the full scheme when it launches in June 2022.
The scheme, which will roll out in stages, will see 1,500 bikes - including e-bikes, available to the public by summer 2022.
The scheme is 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 give hundreds of thousands of Greater Manchester residents and workers an affordable, convenient and quick way to get around.
