Bus & Bike
Bournemouth, Poole & Christchurch has a great bike share scheme run by Beryl Bikes.
There are more than a thousand bikes that can be found in more than 300 Beryl Bays dotted around the area, many located right by our bus stops.
City Sightseeing Bournemouth and Beryl Bikes have joined forces to offer you a great value 24hr Bus & Bike Combo Ticket. SAVE £££s
Your ticket opens up endless opportunities to have a great day out. The frequent bus service will take you round the main circular route and the bikes allow you to go off and explore further, or do different sections and then drop your bike off and jump back on another bus.
Why not hop off at Branksome Chine and ride along the seafront to Sandbanks, or grab a bike at White Cliff and ride the flat harbour side cycle way to Poole Quay.
How it works.
First thing you will need is the Beryl app on your smart phone, the bike share scheme uses the app for you to locate where there are bikes available and then to unlock them. If you don’t have the app already, download below:
Whether you buy the Bus & Bike Combo ticket online, from our driver or one of our many agents in the town, when you get on the bus, the driver will give you your unique code and simply enter that into the app and your 24 hour day pass will start from when you unlock your first bike.
Every bike is tracked via GPS so the app can tell you where your nearest available bikes are.
If you have any question simply ask one of the drivers or drop us an email.
With a great combination of Bus & Bike there is even more reason to leave your car at home and enjoy exploring the local area while not adding to the congestion…and no parking to pay!!
The promenade is a great place to cycle, from Bournemouth to Poole, though you cannot ride on it between 10am and 6pm during July and August.
The bikes are suitable for most people, but you must be 16 years old or over .
Beryl are trialling electric scooters in Bournemouth & Poole, but your Bus & Bike ticket does not include their use. You can however top up additional credit to the app if want to give one a try.
Let your adventure begin!
