Answer for Cycle Hire Scheme

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Last year was the best year yet for Santander Cycles with 10.5 million hires. I am determined that London's world-famous scheme continues to perform well for its users.  Great efforts are made to make sure there is a good supply of bikes and available space at docking stations. In 2016/17, docking stations had at least one bike 93 per cent of the time and had space to dock a bike 96 per cent of the time.

Please refer to the attached tables in as Appendices 1 and 2.
