HumanForest cycle hire in Merton

We seek to work constructively with all operators of cycle hire schemes. This includes formal agreements that set expectations in relation to parking and other service standards. We have entered into a formal agreement with HumanForest to operate a dockless e-bike hire scheme covering the whole of Merton.

Consultations for parking bays

Parking bays can be virtual or physically marked on the ground, either on the footway or on the carriageway. Cycle hire parking bays created on the carriageway are subject to a statutory consultation. Details of any statutory consultations to create cycle hire bays are listed below.
