Travel around Brighton & Hove healthily, sustainably and cheaply using the city’s smart bike share scheme, BTN BikeShare!

The fun and easy-to-use public transport scheme is the first in the UK to combine docking stations and dock-less locking technology.

Residents and visitors can register, hire and locate the scheme’s ‘Life Bikes’ via the Social Bicycles (SoBi) app. The pay as you go rental plan - ‘Easy Rider’ - costs 3p per minute (min spend £1) and is ideal for occasional riders. More frequent users may prefer the ‘Annual Rider’ plan which provides an hour of cycling, every day, for £72 for the year.

You can find and lock Life Bikes at official docking stations along the seafront - from Hove Lawns to near the Brighton Marina, as well as inland as far as the university campuses. For further flexibility, riders can also pick-up and leave Life Bikes outside docking areas at public cycle parking locations for a small fee of £2. As a small thank you, users will earn £1 account credit each time they take a bike that’s been locked outside of a docking area (these bikes are shown as blue on the map).

We are regretfully announcing a winter service pause on BTN Bikeshare due to unavoidable technical issues. A further announcement on the new scheme will follow later this month. All membership holders will be contacted shortly.

Please note, the Hub network will remain in place during the pause period. Where signage boards exist on hubs, written notice about the winter pause will be place in the next two weeks.
