Micromobility provider Beryl has launched a brand new bike and e-bike share scheme in Hertsmere, England.
From Thursday 20 October, a new fleet of 25 bikes and 20 e-bikes will be available to hire from 24 ‘Beryl Bays’.
This means that 28,089 people will be no more than a five minute walk from a bay, which represents 87.5% of the service area’s population.
“One of our core aims is to remove the barriers to sustainable travel and inspire more people to take it up, so we are delighted to be launching our latest scheme in Hertsmere,” said Beryl CEO and Co-Founder Philip Ellis.
“Our services are not only fun, sustainable and healthy, they’re also cost-effective compared to petrol-powered vehicles and offer a variety of flexible ways to pay that can suit all users.”
Beryl will operate the scheme on behalf of Hertsmere Borough Council.
Cllr Seamus Quilty, Portfolio Holder for Environment at Hertsmere Borough Council, said: “I am delighted to launch our new cycle hire scheme with Beryl Bikes. Setting up the bike scheme in Borehamwood is an exciting opportunity not only to help improve air quality, but help people get active and even save money at a time when fuel is so expensive.
“The cycle hire scheme is just one part of our sustainability aims and our commitment to achieving net zero carbon emissions no later than 2050.”
On 20 October a launch day event will be held in Hertsmere so that people can try out the bikes and chat to Beryl staff about the new scheme.
