NEW cycle-hire scheme opens at Oxford Parkway station

Chiltern Railways have partnered with Bainton Bikes and Donkey Republic to offer Oxford Parkway customers bicycle-hire using just their smartphone.

The system, already in action at other locations in Oxford, increases onward travel flexibility for rail customers from the recently built station and adds to Oxford’s sustainable transport options.

Users rent bikes for a specific length of time and unlock the bike through the Donkey Republic smartphone app. The bicycle can then be locked and unlocked using the app throughout the rental period giving users the opportunity to stop at their leisure.

Hire prices are as follows:

2hrs £7.50

6hrs £10.50

12hrs £12.75

1 day £15

Justin Baines, Commercial Director at Chiltern Railways said: “Our aim is to offer our customers the best travel experience. This partnership with Bainton Bikes extends onward travel options for customers and provides wider accessibility to the Oxford area.”
