Tayside Bike Service

Thank you to Jonathan for letting me know about the new Tayside cycle hire scheme. This service fits in well with my thinkings in my earlier post about cycling not being a ‘hot topic’ for politicians. It seems the politicians of Dundee are working hard for the cause!

Dundee is set to join Barcelona, Paris and Stockholm by introducing a self-service cycle hire scheme.

People would be able to pick up a bike at places like the train or bus station then drop it off at certain points across the city.

Riders could use the bike for free for half an hour, then rent it for longer.

The project will be funded by a £2.1m Scottish Government grant for a range of schemes aimed at encouraging people to use cars less.

These schemes will make a real difference, making transport choices cheaper, healthier, safer and greener
