Southern now has three Brompton Dock hire facilities after its first was recently opened at Peckham Rye station.
Passengers can hire a Brompton folding bike for just £2.50 per day by registering at bromptondock.co.uk and then booking the bike either online or by text. Because the bikes are fully folding, passengers can take one on the train at any time – even to and from work during peak times! Not only that, the bike can be taken home and even hired for the weekend.
Southern project manager, Paul Best said: “Not everyone wants to buy a folding bike, so being able to hire one from our stations makes perfect sense. It can be taken on our trains at any time and is a great alternative to the car at either or both ends of the journey.”
Brompton’s Managing Director, Harry Scrope said: “Brompton Dock is delighted to be launching at Redhill and Three Bridges stations. The Brompton folding bike opens up new opportunities for business and leisure travel and, with a network of docks opening down the Southern line, the opportunities are even greater.
“As a member of Brompton Dock, Southern passengers will find our folding bikes for hire at over 26 locations nationally for just £2.50 a day.”
Passenger s can hire the bike for as long as they need it, and return it to any public dock once they’ve finished with it.
Paul added: “We’re sure this initiative will be a great success and if so, we’ll plan to install more Brompton Dock bike hire facilities at more of our stations soon.”
Three Bridges and Redhill stations each have 20 bikes for hire.
