The Connecting Leeds Transport Strategy sets out the reasons for, and benefits of, increasing cycling in Leeds. The Leeds public bike hire scheme will provide everyone who travels in Leeds (be they residents, workers or visitors) with an opportunity to access a network of electric bikes and to use those bikes as an alternative to other modes of travel particularly for short distance trips.
Subject to the West Yorkshire Combined Authority allocating capital funding for the project, the Council commences procurement to secure a commercial partner to deliver and operate the scheme.
That the key financial risks and the ways to manage them are noted, and that the Board endorses the proposal to establish a revenue contingency pot.
