We Did

  • Extended the contract with Future Cycles to operate the Town Hall Bike Park until March 2018

  • Ongoing review of the cycle parking facilities and public cycle hire in the city centre

  • Investigate the use of OneCard as an access key to secure cycle parking hubs in the city centre to allow 24 hour access.


Overview

The Town Hall Bike Park in Leicester provides secure cycle parking in the centre of the city. The park was renovated about five years ago and is currently being run by Future Cycles who won the tender to operate the facility. This tender is due to expire in September 2017.

This consultation has been set up to seek views on potential opening times, charges and services available to customers at the Bike Park.
