Summary of Project
Brighton is a key Urban Centre within Coast to Capital, with a dense population and significant traffic congestion. Brighton and Hove City Council looked to encourage the uptake of sustainable modes of transport in order to reduce congestion, increase physical activity, and improve the health, safety and quality of life of the local population. It is for this reason, Coast to Capital invested Local Growth Funding to this project.
The Project area extends from Hove Station in west, to Brighton Marina Village in the east and along the A270 corridor to Falmer and the University of Sussex to the north, and has successfully installed over 60 Docking stations, with over 550 bikes to be used across the city. In fact, this project has been so successful that there is clear evidence of modal shifts happening, with regular uses throughout the year, and is leading to further bikes and docking stations being put it new locations, and the possibility of bringing in E-bikes to the city in the future.
