Brighton and Hove’s PAYG bike hire scheme has been relaunched with a new provider Beryl, a shared sustainable transport provider, co-founded by University of Brighton alumni, Emily Brooke. When fully delivered across the city this autumn, it will boast a total of 780 bikes, including 468 e-bikes and 312 pedal bikes. This means users will be able to ride and park the bikes in more parts of the city
You can hire a bike or e-bike through the Beryl app, available for free download on the App Store for iOS, and the Google Play Store for Android users. Once you have registered, simply use the app to find your nearest bike, tap to unlock it and off you go!
When you’re finished, make sure you park up in one of the designated Beryl bays. During the first phase, bikes must be returned to active bays. You may incur a charge if bikes are left at bays which are currently not in use.

- AEB, Moulsecoomb campus – docks for 18 bikes
