Countdown To 'Boris Bike' Going Live
Southwest expansion of Barclays Cycle Hire goes live on 13th December
Barclays Cycle Hire is expanding to southwest London on Friday 13 December, when over 150 extra docking stations will be available in the new area and across the existing scheme. All extra docking stations are expected to be operational by spring 2014.
“The scheme will be a valuable addition to our transport network which can help reduce traffic jams and ease overcrowding on our tubes, trains and buses. We see this extension as the first step towards complete borough-wide coverage. The job’s not done until every home is within easy reach of a Boris bike.
“The council is offering free cycling safety training to help more local people gain the skills and confidence they need to try cycle hire. We want as many residents as possible to benefit from this pollution free transport choice which is often the fastest and cheapest option for short journeys across town.”
