Bike Trailer Rental

SEE-Change rent cargo and kids bike trailers for 1 month at a time, as a way of supporting you onto your bike.

This scheme, known as BERT – the Bicycle CO2 Emission Reduction Trial – is designed to enable you to ‘try before you buy’, knowing that trailers can be fairly expensive.

The kid’s bike trailer easily transforms into a pram or jogger AND it contains large behind-the-seat storage areas, making it really easy to take your children to school, do the grocery shopping or just visit friends by bike!

Introducing your child to a bike trailer – contains tips on how to introduce your child to riding in a trailer.

Hire costs:

  • Kid’s bike trailer: $40 for the first month and then $1/day (loaned out from the SEE-Change office at the Downer Community Centre).
  • Cargo trailers: $30 for the first month and then $2/day (loaned out from the  SEE-Change office at the Downer Community Centre).
  • Deposit: $100 refunded when the trailer is returned.

We have double and single bike trailers available.

How it works:

If you are interested in participating in BERT, you can contact us on 6162 2320 or email our BERT co-ordinator. You might also be interested in the following:

If you are interested in purchasing your own trailer at the end of your hire period, we can also help direct you to a supplier.
