Beryl Scooters Bournemouth
Beryl scooters have been in Bournemouth since January 2021. They were originally introduced through a test scheme of 50 scooters.
They’ve proved to be highly popular and are now available for free to hotel staff to travel back and forth to work on. The numbers of Beryl Scooters have now increased significantly in Bournemouth and can be found at nearly every location.
Fun fact: In the time Beryl scooters have been in Bournemouth, 27% of all Beryl Scooter journeys were to replace a journey the person originally would have taken by car/bus/taxi/rideshare.
This works out to be a huge carbon emissions saving. A huge saving of 52 tonnes of carbon emissions. That’s the equivalent of 3.5 million kettles being boiled or 3 hundred flights from London to Edinburgh. That’s a huge benefit to Bournemouth’s air quality and the environment.
In our opinion, Beryl Scooters are the most fun way to see around Bournemouth. Beryl bikes have a speed cap, and in Bournemouth, they are capped at 3 miles per hour in ‘Go Slow’ zones, which is plenty when riding down the beach and around the town. They feel a lot faster when you are riding them though.
