Beryl to launch new e-bike scheme in Hertsmere

The UK’s leading micromobility provider, Beryl, and Hertsmere Borough Council are launching a brand-new bike and e-bike share scheme.

From Thursday 20 October, a new fleet of 25 bikes and 20 e-bikes will be available to hire via the Beryl app.

A launch day event will be held from 10am at the junction of Furzehill Road and Shenley Road in Borehamwood to enable people to look, try out and chat to Beryl representatives about the new scheme.

The bikes can be hired from and returned to 24 ‘Beryl Bays’, which have been located as conveniently as possible following consultation with communities and key stakeholders.

This means that 28,089 people are no more than a five-minute walk from a bay, which represents 87.5% of the service area’s population.

The scheme will be operated by Beryl on behalf of Hertsmere Borough Council. The project is being funded by Strategic Community Infrastructure Levy, Section 106 contribution from SKY Studios and Neighbourhood Community Infrastructure Levy from Elstree and Borehamwood Town Council.

Users can pay for their journeys in a variety of ways to suit individual needs and circumstances.

Pay As You Ride is best for single journeys or occasional rides and will cost users £1 unlocking fee and 5p per minute on pedal bikes or £1.50 unlocking fee and 10p per minute on e-bikes

Minute Bundles enable regular users to buy upfront and save money, starting at 100 minutes for £5

Day Passes are suitable for people on long days out and offer people unlimited riding over a 24-hour-period for £12 for pedal bikes only or £16 to include e-bikes

The Beryl app is available for free download on the App Store for iOS, and the Google Play Store for Android users
