Still time to give your views on bike hire scheme for Saffron Walden

There is still time for residents and businesses to give their views on bike sharing schemes in Saffron Walden.

Bike sharing is a collective term for when 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 types of bike share. In larger towns and cities, bikes are placed on-street with self-service access for one-way hire across a network of parking bays. In some smaller locations, bikes may link up just two or three 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.

Uttlesford District Council is conducting a short online survey to assess what bike sharing options might work in Saffron Walden and to establish the level of interest in setting up a scheme.

The survey is available on the council's Let's Talk Uttlesford website:

The closing date for comments is 30 June 2023.
