Santander Cycles

Santanders Cycles is a public bicycle sharing scheme in London, sponsored by the Spanish banking group Santander who took over sponsorship from April 2015 on a 7 year contact worth around 7m a year.

London cycle sharing scheme was originally launched in July 2010 as Barclays Cycle Hire Link sponsored by Barclays banking group. The Barclays blue theme was replaced by Santanders red colours.

In April 2015 there were over 700 docking stations supporting over 11,500 cycles, and by 2016 these are due to expand to 1000 docking stations with a further 2,500 cycles.

In 2015 it cost 2 for 24 hours of bike access and for journeys over 30minutes an additional 2 for each extra period of up to 30 mins used.
