Penarth nextbike scheme recommendations
The Vale of Glamorgan Council has set aside funding the pilot the first fully electric bike share scheme in Wales.
Following the success of the nextbike cycle hire scheme in Cardiff, we have received requests for the implementation of a similar system in the Vale. In response to this, a pilot scheme will be installed in Penarth. Nextbike will install 50 electric bikes across several docking stations.
So far, we have identified the following as potential locations:
- Penarth Town Centre
- Cogan Train Centre
- Penarth Train Station
- Llandough Hospital
- Penarth Esplanade / Clifftops
- Cosmeston Country Park
Whilst these locations are under consideration, we're inviting residents to give their suggestions. Locations must meet the following criteria in order to be considered:
Close to popular destinations such as existing transport links, job centres, supermarkets and other shops
Within a 5-10 minute ride to other stations
Have a high footfall
Highly visible and easy to find
Have enough space to allow safe movement of pedestrians and people with limited mobility
Accessible by van or bike trailer to allow our service team to maintain the bikes and stations
Monitored by CCTV
Final decisions will be made based on the above criteria, as well as the ability to source power to the locations, which will be determined by power providers.
Submit your suggestions!
Please submit your location suggestions via the nextbike station survey page.
