Boris Bike Expansion

From Tomorrow (8th March 2012), Barclays Cycle Hire is extending eastwards to include the borough of Tower Hamlets, including Canary Wharf, as well as North Shoreditch in Hackney. This expansion will increase the size of the area covered by the scheme from 45Km2 to 65km2

The expansion funded in part by an extra £25m from Barclays includes future expansion to Westfield White City in West London. The Westfield center's operators have supplied an additional £4M to help finance the move west.

The phase 2 expansion operation will see 2,300 new bikes in the system, increasing the size of the fleet by more than a third to more than 8,300, with 4,800 new docking points being made available, taking the total to 15,000.
