Cycle hire feasibility study – Cambuslang and Rutherglen

We are carrying out a feasibility study to examine the development of bike-share facilities in Cambuslang and Rutherglen.  This will help us to understand how South Lanarkshire’s unique characteristics might influence the feasibility of establishing bike/Ebike share operations and to investigate the potential benefits this might bring to the council, other workplaces, and trip generators as well as residents of Cambuslang and Rutherglen.  

The study will build on research already done and revisit the feasibility of a cycle hire scheme in the current context concentrating on the Cambuslang and Rutherglen areas.  

A cycle hire scheme would mean that people could hire bikes from locations around the study area, similar to those seen in other cities including Glasgow. The cycle hire could also include Ebikes, which can be powered by electricity as well as through pedal power. These can make cycling further and climbing hills easier. Feedback from local people is critical to this.

We have appointed Atkins and Ansons Consulting to carry out the feasibility study and a survey has been developed to gather information from key stakeholders and members of the public.

From your comments, we can gain useful local knowledge and find out what type of facilities would meet the needs of the community.

Have your say

The survey should take approximately 10 minutes to complete. The survey does not collect personal information unless you choose to provide it. The information provided is for use on this project only.

The survey is open until Friday 10 February 2023.
