As part of our cycle hangar policy report research, we spoke to Londoners about their experiences of securely parking their cycles on the capital’s streets. We interviewed three residents in two of London’s most oversubscribed boroughs – Islington and Southwark – to understand their views on the matter; asking interviewees about where they store their cycles, how long they’ve been waiting to get a space and who they think is responsible for increasing provision. These conversations provided the Fare City team with a good insight into some of the challenges that many Londoners currently face and encouraged the team to begin thinking about solutions to help address them.
Fare City are a team of built environment professionals, with a broad range of experience and expertise across a number of sectors. These include urbanism, transport, climate change adaptation and mitigation, architecture, and policy. Our differing backgrounds are strongly allied through our shared outlook; to advocate for a more accessible, equitable and sustainable approach to city-wide transport. This is an approach which we believe will help to foster a fairer city for all.
