Encouraging cycling

Cycle Hire scheme

Cycle hire

We proposed a mass Cycle Hire scheme for London in 2007, and were delighted when the current infrastructure was opened in 2010.

The scheme has been a great success, despite some early technology problems, and we welcome the appearance of docking stations on thousands of street corners, pushing the profile of cycling higher into the city's consciousness.

We welcome the expansion eastwards, and will be pushing for docking stations to be rolled out further across Greater London, particularly south of the river.
