University of Warwick introduces pioneering new campus cycle scheme Unicycle at Warwick…

Submitted by on October 9, 2015 – 6:30 am |

University of Warwick introduces pioneering new campus cycle scheme ‘UniCycles at Warwick'.On Saturday 3 October the University of Warwick introduced a new cycle hire scheme on campus, called ‘UniCycles at Warwick’, in partnership with German company nextbike and sponsored by PricewaterhouseCoopers.

The innovative new bike hire scheme, which is available to all students and staff and students when they are on campus is an initiative developed by the University in collaboration with Warwick BSc students Stan Jallot and Gal Israeli.

From Saturday, students and staff can hire one of 50 bikes from 9 campus-based UniCycles stations at any time, 24 hours a day. To hire the bikes students and staff have the option to purchase an annual subscription, which gives them a free hire period per ride and discounted hire fees, or they can pay-as-you-go.

All users must register with the scheme to rent a bike, and bikes can be simply booked through a smart phone application, an online booking system, or through a dedicated phone number. All options generate a unique pin code, which enables the user to unlock a bike and start cycling.

The bikes are available for short hops to help get to lectures and meetings on time, or for a longer periods. The bikes can also be used off campus allowing students and staff to explore the local area on two wheels.

UniCycles at Warwick will contribute to developing an even greener, more accessible and enjoyable campus at the University of Warwick.

For more information about the scheme, including how to access the bikes and where you can find them, please visit:
