Pop Up Bike Parking: Shortlist

NEWS |

Today we’re thrilled to announce the shortlist for the Pop Up Bike Parking competition that we launched in September with Network Rail! The competition marks the latest phase in our collaboration with Network Rail.

We invited architects and designers to submit proposals for innovative prototypes for creative and innovative bike parking solutions at London’s stations. The brief also explores how bike parking can adapt to the changing demand when rolled-out in different locations and seasons.

We received an overwhelming response to the open call and the applications were all of the highest standard. The shortlist demonstrates how secure bike storage improves passengers’ journeys, as well as strengthening the network of sustainable travel options.
