New casual tariff added for Lincoln hirebikes

New casual day tariff: Access LN6 introduced a new tariff for residents and visitors looking to use Lincoln’s bike hire scheme.

Access LN6 has introduced a new tariff for residents and visitors looking to use Lincoln’s bike hire scheme: a casual day tariff.

The new hirebike tariff is aimed at those visiting for a short period or residents looking to use the bikes only occasionally.

It means in order to rent a bike for just the day, you can register much quicker.

It’s an addition to the membership tariffs, suited to those making regular trips.

Rentals cost £2 per hour or £5 for a full-day rental. Users purchase the amount of credit they need at the beginning of the day.

Councillor Richard Davies, Executive Councillor for Highways and Transportation at Lincolnshire County Council, said: “Hirebike has been hugely successful in Lincoln with more than 2,200 rentals since the scheme launched last year.

“We are now expanding with more stations and bikes, and we hope that more people will use the scheme.

“Our casual day tariff is ideal for tourists staying in Lincoln, relatives visiting friends and family in the city, or residents who just want to try something new.”

Anyone who uses the new tariff between November 27 and December 11 will also receive free entry to Lincoln Ice Rink.

Since the scheme launched last year, 1,400 people have registered and over 2,200 bikes have been rented.

There are now 13 hirebike stations across Lincoln:

  1. Burton Waters (Woodcocks Pub)
  2. Burton Waters (Marina Roundabout)
  3. Skellingthorpe Community Centre
  4. Brayford Waterfront
  5. Lincoln train station
  6. Birchwood Avenue (opposite Birchwood Centre)
  7. The Showroom (Tritton Road)
  8. Moorland Avenue (The Junction)
  9. Kingsley Road
  10. Hykeham train station
  11. Newark Road (opposite ASDA)
  12. Lakeview Close (off Newark Road)
