Brompton cycle hire launches at Guildford station

Eighty Bromptons are available to hire from Guildford station

The UK’s first self-service Brompton rental scheme has launched at Guilford station.

South West Trains has joined forces with the folding bicycle company ‘in a bid to encourage passengers to cycle as part of a fully integrated low carbon journey combining bike and train.’

Rental costs from £1.60 per day and users are required to register and purchase a smartcard online from

The 80 bikes are available to South West Trains season tickets holders and members of the public and are stored in lockers on just one car parking space, powered by solar-panels, manufactured in the UK and made from 95 per cent recycled material.

“In the last 10 years, bike journeys have increased 10 fold,” said Brompton managing director Mark Antwis. “This is the first Brompton dock in the country and we believe this will make bike journeys even more attractive and set people free by providing a ready to ride high quality Brompton bike to rent.”
