ScotRail not only encourages cyclists to use local trains – it’s now offering customers bikes for hire at Glasgow and several other stations.

The roll-out of the Bike&Go scheme at Glasgow Central station aims to get over the message that more ScotRail customers can now continue their journeys in an environmentally friendly and cost-effective way - “reaffirming the train operator’s commitment to encourage sustainable, integrated travel”.

The Bike&Go system makes it possible for anyone to hire one of the four bikes at the station for 24 hours, for just £3.80.

Registration is £10 for one year, and is valid at all Bike&Go locations, and members can hire up to two bikes at once

Bike&Go gives unlimited use of the bikes for 24 hours, with first time users completing a simple registration form before pedalling off.

ScotRail’s programmes and transformation director Ian McConnell said: “We’re committed to making sustainable integrated travel options as easy as possible.

Bike&Go is just one of the ways we are doing this – it’s a fantastic way for customers to complete their onward journey by bicycle.

“Cycling is a great way for people of all age groups to increase their level of physical activity and improve their health and well-being.

“The easy-to-use bikes are ideal for business travellers, visitors and day-trippers.”
