Through Bikes For All, we provide heavily discounted membership to the nextbike scheme for people of Glasgow on low or no income.
The Bikes For All project offers annual memberships for £3 to the nextbike city-wide bike hire scheme, which usually costs £60. Nextbike are an innovative bike share scheme provider, offering high quality and good value bikes situated across Glasgow.
Alongside the heavily-discounted membership, we also offer a cheaper hire system:
- Normal nextbike membership: First 30 mins of rental is free, and every 30 mins thereafter is 50p
- Bikes For all nextbike membership: First 60 mins is free, and every 60 mins is 50p thereafter
We reason that as long as you are able to keep your commute to within an hour long, you will not have to pay for cycle transport.
Bikes For All is for anyone in Glasgow who is on a very low, or no, income. Typical users of Bikes For All are people suffering long-term conditions leaving them less able to work, the unemployed, homeless or those in temporary accommodation, and refugees and asylum seekers.
We offer orientation rides, guidance on how to hire a bike, and how to cycle in Glasgow city centre. We have instructions for the Nextbike scheme available in many languages. You don’t need a bank card or a smartphone to access the bikes, as we know this can be a big barrier.
Bikes For All is a partnership between Bike for Good, Como UK, and the Glasgow Centre for Population Health.
