Work begins on 'super' docking station at Waterloo

More than 1.3 million journeys have been made on Boris Bikes since July

Work has begun on what will be London’s biggest Boris Bike docking station at Waterloo station.

The 124-space Barclays Cycle Hire is expected to be open for business by mid-December.

Approximately 20,000 Boris Bike trips are made a day and the scheme now has more than 100,000 members.

“Demand for bikes in the Waterloo area has been particularly high and the new ‘super’ docking station there is the first of a series that we are putting in to help our ever increasing membership get around town,” said the Mayor of London’s transport advisor Kulveer Ranger.

Network Rail’s director of stations and customer services Mike Goggin added: “It is great news for the thousands of passengers who use Waterloo every day that they will soon be able to hire bikes and drop them off at the station. 

“Together with the recently upgraded bike parking facilities at the station, the arrival of the increasingly popular Barclays Cycle Hire will make it easier and more convenient than ever before for passengers to make their onward journeys by bike.

“We support the Mayor’s ambition to make London a cycling city and we will continue working with TfL to explore options for installing docking stations at other mainline stations to meet the increasing demand.”
