Mobike, which started operating in Newcastle on 16 October 2017 has recently extended its operating area and this now includes High West Jesmond and Gosforth.
This means that residents will now be able to download the app and use Mobike’s high tech silver and orange iconic bikes from their local neighbourhood and in a much wider area across Newcastle, as shown in the map below.
The new operating area has been extended northwards beyond the original limit of the A189 Jesmond Dene Road to include much of the north of the city.
To use Mobike you need to download the Mobike app and pay a deposit. Riders will be charged 50p for 30 minutes.
The Mobike app will guide users towards the best locations to pick up and park the bikes.
Ilford Road metro station (platform 2 northbound) is a Mobike parking spot shown on the app.
