Answer for Cycle Hire docking stations

Answered By: 
The Mayor

The Cycle Hire scheme continues to be a success with last year seeing an unprecedented 10.3 million hires, 4.4 per cent more than in 2015. 

The Cycle Hire scheme went live in 2010 with 400 sites and since then has been extended on three occasions: to Tower Hamlets and Canary Wharf in 2012; in 2013 to Hammersmith and Fulham, Putney and Clapham; and to the Queen Elizabeth Park earlier this year.  The latest extension, with seven docking stations being delivered in Brixton, will go-live shortly.

In order to provide a network of stations Transport for London looks to position them around 300 metres apart to provide the best opportunity to both hire or dock cycles. Locations are provided and agreed through local Borough planning meetings.
