BTN BikeShare: a successful first month

Launched on 1 September, BTN BikeShare in association with Life Natural Spring Water, has announced encouraging user figures for its first month of operation, suggesting it is set to be a top-performing bike share scheme for the UK.

The first 30 days have seen over 9,000 registrations, and an average of 800 journeys on the Life Bikes per day. Users have cycled 50,000 miles so far – almost a quarter of the way to the moon, or more than twice around the world.

Brighton Station, Brighton Marina and the universities are amongst the latest docking stations to be installed. A map of the live docking stations can be found at
www.btnbikeshare.com
.

Tim Caswell, owner of Hourbike, the company operating the scheme, said:
“We came in knowing Brighton & Hove is a unique city with a strong cycling culture, but still the usage figures are even better than we could have imagined! None of our other schemes across UK and Europe have had such a strong first month.”

Residents and visitors can hire and locate the Life Bikes via the SoBi app.
A casual rental plan, priced at 3p per minute (£1 minimum spend), is ideal for occasional riding. More frequent users may prefer an annual membership, which provides an hour of daily cycling for £72.

Chair of the Council’s Environment, Transport and Sustainability Committee, Cllr Gill Mitchell, added: “It’s encouraging to hear that BTN Bike Share has had a successful first month and that the bikes are proving popular with both residents and visitors to the city.”
