Public consultation open to save ReadyBike from 2017 closure

Public consultation ReadyBike

Due to significant budget cuts Reading Borough Council are proposing to no longer subsidise ReadyBike from 14 June 2017. While they are exploring all options to keep the scheme running, it means that the current system may close from next summer.  

An online public consultation is running until Friday 30 September- to share your views with the Council, please visit the ReadyBike consultation page.   

ReadyBike provides staff and students with a convenient way to cycle around Reading without having to own or store a bicycle. The stations on campus have proved to be very popular since the scheme first launched in June 2014- the station at Christchurch Green (near the Sportspark) is the 2nd busiest docking station in Reading, while the station behind the Library is the 4th busiest (out of the 29 docking stations located across Reading). 

A total of 3773 journeys have been made from Whiteknights campus and 4371 have been made from Christchurch Green. Popular journeys around campus include Christchurch Green to Earley Gate (575 journeys), Reading Station South to London Road Campus (628 journeys) and Reading Station South to Whiteknights campus (529 journeys).
