London e-bike fleet boosted after increased demand

24 January 2024/Categories: Industry News, Transport Planning, Net-Zero

Transport for London (Tfl) has announced a further 1,400 e-bikes will be introduced in the city as part of the Santander Cycle scheme, growing the fleet from 600 to 2000.

Santander Cycle scheme received 6.75 million member hires in 2023 being the most hires in a single year since the scheme was introduced in 2022.

The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said: "I'm delighted that we're adding a further 1,400 new e-bikes to the fleet, almost tripling the number available to hire.

“The e-bikes have proved hugely popular since they were introduced and help break down the barriers that stop some people from cycling. The new day pass rate will also make Santander bikes one of the most affordable ways to travel in the capital.

"I'm determined to continue building a cleaner, greener and more prosperous London for everyone, and Santander Cycles plays a hugely important role in making active travel around the city as accessible as possible."

Come March a £3 day pass will allow unlimited journeys under 30 minutes all day with a fee of £1 every additional 30 minutes.

David Eddington, TfL's Head of Cycle Hire, said: "Santander Cycles has played an important role in encouraging more people to cycle and we look forward to seeing more Londoners making use of both the scheme's e-bikes and mechanical bikes to ensure a greener and healthier future for everyone in London."
