The bikes are a greener alternative to other transport, like cars, cheaper than the city bus, and quicker than walking.

A spokesperson for U-cycle said "A University of Nottingham student or staff member swapping from the bus to U-cycle contributes around 80% less CO2 per year.

"That's 39.6 kg of CO2 prevented from entering the atmosphere. U-cycle have prevented 1.78 tons of CO2 from entering the atmosphere."
