Two wheels in West Midlands

E-scooters are back in Birmingham!

From Birchfield to the Bullring to Selly Oak, Edgbaston to Aston, scoot your way past the traffic and enjoy Birmingham on two wheels.

If you're already riding with West Midlands Cycle Hire you can use the same app.

*What does ‘double the minutes on pedal bikes’ mean with our Flexi or Day pass?

When you opt to ride a pedal bike and are using a Flexi or Day Pass, your minutes will effectively double for that ride! When using a pedal bike you will use just 1 minute from your pass for every 2 minutes cycled. A pedal bike is the most sustainable way to travel, so we want to reward you for helping the planet.

 

Parking fees

Out of bay charge

A £10 convenience fee will be charged for e-scooters left outside of a Beryl bay. 

Out of zone fee

A £20 convenience fee will be charged for e-scooters locked outside the Beryl zone. 

If the e-scooter is not brought back into the operating zone within 24 hours, an additional £80 fee will be charged to cover the cost of recovering the e-scooter.

Unlocked e-scooter fee

Our e-scooters are unlocked and locked directly from the Beryl app. It's your responsibility to end every ride you take to make sure the e-scooter is secure and ready for the next rider.

A flat fee of £30 will be charged to cover the cost of us sending our operations team out to lock the e-scooter on your behalf.
