Other charges

The convenience fee for out of station parking

A convenience fee of £5 applies if you do not end your ride in a cycle hire station. The fee covers the operational cost incurred to return the bike to a station for others to ride.

Out of Beryl Zone fee

If you lock a bike outside the operating zone, a fee of £10 will apply.

If the bike is not brought back into the operating zone within 24 hours, an additional £80 fee will apply to cover the cost of recovering the bike.

Unlocked bike fee

At the end of your ride, please make sure you lock your bike correctly in a stand. The bike will chime to let you know it is locked. Please check in the Beryl app to make sure your ride has ended.

If you forget to lock your bike and leave it unlocked, your journey will continue. Unlocked and unattended bikes are at higher risk of being stolen or vandalised and will not appear as available on the app for other users.

A flat fee of £10 will apply to cover the cost of sending out the operations team to lock the bike.
