There are two ways to ride with us, you can either buy bundles of minutes up-front, or pay as you ride.

Minute bundles

Best for regular users of the scheme as you won’t pay an unlock fee when you ride.

Buy a bundle of minutes upfront and we’ll deduct minutes from your balance depending on how long you ride for. The cost of one minute of riding is 5p.
