Cycle Hire and DRT

17 November 2021

Along with all the sustainable travel you do whilst on campus, there are also other ways you can zip around.

This story highlights two of these along with links to ticketing offers.

Cycle Hire:

Home - West Midlands Cycle Hire (wmcyclehire.co.uk) 

The bikes are simple to use and perfect for enjoying an easy ride.

  1. Comfort first: our cushioned saddles are easy to adjust to your preferred height
  2. Pedal power: 3 gears to tackle any hill
  3. Keep it clean: mud and chain guards to protect your clothes
  4. Light the night: laser lights for your added safety
  5. Put it away: handy storage at the front for your essentials

Electric bikes will be available later in the year.

DRT:

Are now also offering Ride Passes. Offered as either a 12 (£25) or 30 (£50) Ride Pass bundle, which entitle you to take individual journeys to any destination within the WM On Demand operational zone.

For frequent riders these offer a saving on individual journeys, especially if you are frequently making longer trips.
