E-bike share scheme set to launch in Guildford

Have your say

People in Guildford can comment on the location of 50 docking stations, ahead of the launch of a town-wide e-bike share scheme due this summer.

Surrey County Council is contributing £1.05 million to support the start of the scheme, alongside £250,000 from Guildford Borough Council. The University of Surrey is also a partner supporting the scheme. The scheme will have 300 e-bikes to give people an easy and affordable alternative for travelling around Guildford, without relying on their cars.

The locations of the docking stations have been proposed to allow people to reach travel hubs, places of interest, shopping centres and areas with little public transport options in an accessible and sustainable way. It's also important to hear the views of people living, working, visiting or studying in Guildford to make sure the docking stations are in the right locations.

Users will be able to hire a bike using an app, with bikes being picked up and dropped off from the docking stations. Tracking systems will monitor how the bikes are being used – including if they're being ridden in areas where cycling is prohibited, or if they're not being returned to one of the docking stations.
