Go E-bike

Go E-Bike is a shared bike rental scheme providing access to a fleet of electric and conventional bikes from fixed bases across the Town and Eden Campus. It is operated by App-Bike on behalf of the University of St Andrews and funding from Sestrans.

The scheme is initially aimed at providing University staff with access to a shared bike scheme for within work journeys and commuting. Staff members are asked to attend a 1 hour training session before registering with the Go E-Bike Operator, App Bike ( They can then access the bikes using an App on their smart phone. A smart phone is required to use this scheme.

Initially there are 4 Go E-bike stations to pick-up and return bikes from: Eden Campus Park and Pedal, Gateway Building, Woodburn (East Sands) and College Gate. Once hired staff are able to take bikes anywhere for up to 24 hours without charge. The hire stops when you return the bike to its base and close the hire on the phone App

Cost: Our Go E-bike scheme is currently Free to staff for the first 24hours of use. After this period you will be charged £2 per hour up to a maximum of £17.50 per day.

How: To give you the best experience we would like to make sure all our cyclists are competent and confident cyclists by providing a one hour training session on our bikes.
