New Goodwill Bike Co. takes you on a joy ride
Those studying and working in the Gardens Point and South Bank precincts will never have to do a mad scurry across the bridge when they’re running a little late again. Carrying heavy text books and turning umbrellas inside out in the wind are now, too, concerns of the past. This is because every three minutes from each side of Brisbane’s Goodwill Bridge, a sheltered, electric tricycle will be at your service to carry you across the river. From 7:45 am to 5:45 pm, six days a week, you can hire a trike, hop on for a joy ride, and avoid having to approach the other side of the bridge speckled with sweat or rain. Named not only for its landmark setting, Goodwill Bike Co. is the creation of a team of friendly folk, who plan to invest their fiscal and humanitarian resources in useful community projects each year. To find yourself a sweet ride, stand at the end of the bridge and look out for the love-heart adorned tricycles and smiley drivers.
