BARCLAYS CYCLE HIRE, CYCLE ROUTES

  • THE PRACTICE USED THE RESOURCES OF ITS IN-HOUSE ADVANCED DESIGN GROUP TO MODEL THE DATA GENERATED BY THE 1.4 MILLION TRIPS TAKEN BY BARCLAYS CYCLE HIRE USERS IN LONDON, OVER A PERIOD OF FOUR MONTHS.
  • Highlighting the most popular routes used, data from such studies can be used in a number of ways by urban planners; to predict the impact of introducing new docking stations; to prioritise road safety improvements; and to achieve urban renewal on the most travelled routes. Analysis of the data by the Practice suggests that more than two million kilometres have been travelled over the four-month period. While there can be no doubt regarding the value of the Barclays Cycle Hire scheme, the contribution it makes in terms of carbon reduction is tiny; the equivalent of the annual CO2 emissions of an average London office block, or probably less than 0.005% of the estimated 18 million tonnes of C02 produced by transport in the capital. London clearly has a long way to go to support low carbon living.
