Workplace Pool Bikes: A practical guide to developing a scheme
Interested in offering staff pool bikes to travel actively between meetings and around campuses and business parks?
The benefits for employees include: improved health; reduced sickness; improved journey times and less need to provide parking spaces.
If your area already has a city wide public bike share scheme it is worth contacting the operators to explore the option of adding bikes in your setting. This may require a contribution to the cost of adding additional bikes or a docking station at the site alternatively the operators may suggest the employer could purchase membership passes for staff. Connecting to a wider city scheme would allow staff to enjoy a more flexible service.
Where there isn’t an existing service and a new pool bike scheme is required a further option is whether to contract out or run a scheme with in house resources.
If you have decided the best option is to manage a scheme in house there is a guide available showing key areas for consideration.
