Coca Cola Zero Belfast Bikes launched on 27 April 2015 providing 300 bikes and 30 docking stations in city centre locations. Over the course of the next few months three new stations with be added to the scheme, two around Queen’s University and one at Titanic Belfast. We’ll consider extending the coverage to other parts of the city once further funding is secured.
Bike share provides a sustainable, low-cost way for people to get around key locations in Belfast city centre. It should reduce the number of car trips being made for short journeys, reduce traffic congestion, vehicle emissions and demand for parking. It should also enhance public transport by allowing you to use a public bicycle to complete the first or last leg of your trip (for example from the train station to your workplace).
You can register as a casual or annual user and the first 30 minutes of each trip are free of charge.

We revised our Transport Policy for Belfast in 2008 to give us an up to date transport vision for the city. The new policy outlines our aims for the future sustainable development and improvement of Belfast’s transport infrastructure until 2015. It also provides guidance so that any regional and local transportation polices can be developed in line with our wider objectives on sustainable economic development, environmental responsibility, tourism, leisure, good relations, education and health.
