Cycle Hire - Megadock Waterloo

TfL announced yesterday that a new 126-space docking station at Waterloo has been unveiled on the day that more than two million journeys have been made on the blue barges.

Good news of course, although latent demand is such that a hundred docks isn't going to make a huge impact.

Another 'fascinating fact' is that in 10 days, casual-use hirers have already made over 9,500 journeys. That's only 1000 a day, a bit of a slow start and not enough to make a significant contribution towards the target of 40,000 hires a day, but the winter weather and long hours of darkness have rather mitigated against mass take-up.
