Merseytravel agree pilot of Liverpool City Centre bicycle hire scheme
Merseytravel councillors last month at its Annual Meeting agreed to start a pilot of a Liverpool City Centre bicycle hire scheme. A pilot will start this month and if successful the project for a larger scheme will go out to tender with the first phase rolled out in March 2014 (just in time for politicians to take credit for it in the upcoming local elections next May).
So, is Liverpool looking to copy London’s “Boris Bikes”? Will it be used by the locals or will it just mainly be used by the tourists?
On cycle related news, I spotted quadricycles being hired at New Brighton for £10 an hour recently. Certainly they seemed popular with the increasing number of tourists that are visiting New Brighton, so maybe Merseytravel can make it a success. Please leave your best bicycle related puns on Merseytravel’s new project as comments.
