Student pass for £10 

Details of Just Eat Cycles student pass

Just Eat Cycles is offering a Student Pass for just £10. 

The pass lasts for 4 months and the first 60 minutes of each session on a bike is covered by the pass and it’s only 5p per minute if you go over the 1 hour. The pass also gives you access to unlock a Just Cycles’ electric bike (normally £1.50 to unlock) and pay just 10p per minute after the first 3 minutes of a session.

Visit the special offer page or download the app and select the Student Pass subscription and you can start riding immediately:


There are several ways to hire a bike using the smartphone app: 

  • Single trip - £1.50 for up to an hour
  • Day subscription - £3 for unlimited hires of up to one hour each in a 24-hour period
  • Annual membership - £90 for 365 days of one-hour hires. 

For regular bikes, the first hour of a trip is included in the price of the pass, beyond that the price is £0.05 per minute.

For electric bikes the trip price is £0.10 per minute from when you unlock it until you return it.

Electric bikes

Electric bikes are also available to hire. These have an electric motor that assists you when pedalling - making cycling up Edinburgh’s hills a breeze! There is an additional charge when using an electric bike of £0.10 per minute from when you unlock it until you return it.
