London’s bike hire scheme keeps breaking its own records, with Santander Cycles being hired more than ever before for each of the last six months.
Data released by Transport for London on Friday shows that for each month since September, the number of hires has broken the previous record for that month.
In February, 750,000 hires were made across the capital, which works out at average of almost 27,000 per day. January was also a record month for the scheme, with 748,000 hires, or 24,000 per day, despite the inclement weather.
The London bike hire scheme also had its record year in 2021, with figures showing that 11 million bikes were hired out last year.
