Plans For Boris Bikes In South West London


The Mayor and Transport for London has set out plans for the extension of the Barclays Cycle Hire scheme to southwest London and the introduction of additional docking stations in busy areas.

The Mayor asked TfL to prepare plans for a westward expansion of the scheme in the boroughs of Wandsworth, Hammersmith & Fulham, Lambeth and Kensington & Chelsea last year. Since then TfL has been working with the boroughs to identify more than 200 suitable locations for docking stations and to develop the design and layout of the proposed expanded area.

The next stage will be public information sessions about the location of the docking points within the expansion area.

Additional docking points will also be introduced throughout the existing operational areas to further improve customer availability.
 
 Public information sessions will begin in October, and all docking stations are expected to be in by spring 2014.

The extension to the west and the introduction of new docking stations within the existing area will increase the number of bicycles by 2,400 to around 11,000
and will deliver an additional 250,000-300,000 Barclays Cycle Hire journeys each month.

Public information sessions begin in October at the following locations:
