New cycle scheme for Birmingham

A new cycle scheme in Birmingham will allow rail passengers using Birmingham's three city centre stations to hire bicycles and cycle the rest of their journeys.

Transport authority Centro have teamed up with Birmingham City Council to launch the £140,000 scheme.

Docks will contain 20 bikes, with each bike opened from its bay by using a code sent to the user's phone.
