Sustainability: "We found out that you can rent two bikes per daily membership - each bike will be charged the £1 unlock fee and the correct tariff for the bike you select. The bikes are 50p per 15 minutes with a maximum cost of £10 for a pedal bike and £20 for an electrical bike. This means the bikes are affordable. Students also get a discounted price which works well as Liverpool has a large amount of students." - Pixie H
"Interestingly, you can become an annual member. This means you can rent your boke for a whole year. This really encourages people to keep travelling in an eco- friendly way." - Urwah Y
"When you rent a bike you must return the bike within 24 hours, but once registered you have an account and can can control your account by using the app or website. This means it is really easy for people to continue to hire the bikes." - Ellis

Improvements: "To improve the 'CityBike' sustainable solution in our city, we feel even more stations need to be introduced. With the majority of the stations in the city center the bikes are helping to reduce traffic. However, the traffic in the areas further away from the central part of our city could also be reduced". - Anthony D
Our Suggestion: "With our closest bike station 15 minutes away from our school, we would like to see more bike stations introduced further out of the city. We would like to see more 'CityBike' stations in our local area. This would reduce traffic even further and be more inclusive to people who live further away from the central part of our city. We are looking forward to vising a 'CityBike' location when the current restrictions end." - Alexandra D
