Consultation Bike share options for Saffron Walden

This survey is designed to explore if there is interest in providing access to a pool of bikes in Saffron Walden.

Consultation period 15 March to 15 June 2023

Further information 

Bike sharing is a collective term for where a pool of bikes is made available for people to use rather than having to own or use their own bike. There are many different type of bike share. In larger towns and cities like Cambridge, bikes are placed on-street with self service access for one-way hires across a network of parking bays. In some smaller locations bikes may link up just 2 or 3 key locations.

Other schemes often offer pick up and drop off in only one location, more like traditional bike hire or longer term loans to try out cycling bike before buying one.

These questions are designed to assess what options might work in Saffron Walden and to invite anyone who would like to get involved in supporting the idea to work with us.

You can find the Saffron Walden Bike Share Survey on our Let's Talk Uttlesford engagement website.
