OYbike – London’s getting cheap bikes everywhere…

May 11th, 2006 · No Comments

oybikeSince my last post was about cars, I’ve decided to make this one about bikes.

In London, a group called OYbike is placing bikes all over town. Special codes to unlock the bikes are accessed via text message. When you’re done, return the bike to a parking bay and lock it up.

It costs 30p ($US.55) per 15 minutes to hire a bike. The OYbike website has a table indicating that the bikes often work out even cheaper than catching the bus or train.
