The system is self-service and is available 24 hours a day throughout the year. Costs are the same to both members and non members. The access fee starts from £1 a day and the first thirty minutes of any journey is free. 

Kulveer Ranger, the Mayor of London's Transport Advisor, said: "One of the best things about Barclays Cycle Hire has been the number of cyclists who have told me how the bikes have made a positive change to their life, as well as their commute. Users say they feel healthier, fitter and invigorated when they reach their destination. That is all part of the joy of taking to two wheels."

UCL has a cycle scheme to assist staff in purchasing a bike. An allowance may also be available if the bike is used for business travel. For more details, visit the link at the top of this page.

The TFL bikes can now be picked up from the following locations:

  • Gower Place
  • Taviton Street
  • Euston Road
  • Malet Street
