As with most similar schemes around the world, the cargo bike must be returned to its original location at the end of your trip.

The council said that to use the bicycle you need access to two mobile apps: the Bleeper app to unlock the bike, and the EVVA Airkey for the bike storage bunker. The latter involves contacting Bleeper customer service on your first use.
