New cycle hire scheme due to launch across the West Midlands offering more people the chance to cycle
The operator of London’s famous Santander Cycles has been appointed by Transport for West Midlands (TfWM) to offer bikes for hire in Birmingham, Coventry, Dudley, Sandwell, Solihull, Wolverhampton and Walsall from Spring.
Contractor Serco will initially provide 1,500 bikes for hire, of which 10% will be ebikes. The pedal cycles will all have three gears to cope with the hilly parts of the region and fitted with high quality laser safety lights that project an image of a bicycle five meters in front of the bike.
