Glasgow for bike hire scheme

Bikes, London Cycle Hire

Glasgow could have a public bike hire scheme up and running in time for this summer's Commonwealth Games.

The £586,000 scheme, which is similar to London's ‘Boris Bikes', will be taxpayer-funded until a sponsorship deal is reached. Nextbike, the company behind cycle systems in Warsaw and Dubai, hope the first bikes will be available to use in early May.
