There is good news for commuters in the Headington area of Oxford as a new operator has come on board to run the successful OXONBIKE scheme.
The innovative cycle-hire scheme was launched in July 2013 but, despite being a hit with users, the original operators were unable to carry on.
HourBike, has come on board and will help to relaunch OXONBIKE in April. Oxford will join Reading on the list of successful projects.
– County Councillor David Nimmo Smith, Cabinet member for transport
I am delighted to hear that HourBike will be getting the bikes back on the road in time for the summer. More than 500 people signed up to OXONBIKE last year and we are certain that they will get back in the saddle from April. Commuters who use Thornhill park and ride and who travel in and around Headington to places like the university and hospital are certain to be pleased to hear OXONBIKE will return."
The cost of hiring bikes will remain the same with the first 30 minutes being free. For many people the free period is all they need in order to be able to get where they are going.
All hire charges, including the free period will remain, as will the hire sites.
– Tim Caswell, CEO of HourBike
I am delighted that we have been given the opportunity to get involved in Oxford and help give commuters in the Headington area another way to get around. April will be an exciting time as we relaunch the scheme and look forward to welcoming back OXONBIKE users old and new.”
