Micromobility parking platform provider Bikeep has been working closely with Apcoa Parking and Govia Thameslink Railway (GTR) to introduce its secure cycle storage and e-bike charging solution to stations on the UK rail network.
The first of these facilities have been introduced at Bedford and Harpenden stations, with customers now able to access Bikeep’s individual smart bike racks.
These racks are designed for secure and convenient parking and charging whilst riders continuing their journey by train.
David Gornall, commercial director at GTR, said: “We’re pleased to be partnering up with Apcoa and Bikeep to provide charging points for customers using electric bikes.
“In addition to EV charging points across our network, the new e-bike charging facilities at Bedford and Harpenden will support those making environmentally-friendly journeys to and from the station and will hopefully encourage more rail users to consider this mode of transport.”
The collaboration said the introduction of e-bike charging racks follows the growing trend towards sustainable transportation. Apcoa added as more funding is directed towards supporting infrastructure – this usage will continue to increase.
