Electric bicycle hire to be trialled in East Croydon


Lime, a company already providing dockless “ebikes” in Milton Keynes, Brent, Ealing and Islington, will bring 200 “ebikes” to Croydon for a year-long trial starting in May.

The bikes will be accessed and locked using a mobile phone app. Each one will be fitted with GPS, locks, a bell and front and rear lights and reflectors.

Sites for picking up and returning the bikes in and around the ECCO area MAY include:

  • Addiscombe Road/Altyre Road
  • Addiscombe Road, outside the old sorting office
  • East Croydon station/Billinton Hill (pictured)
  • Cherry Orchard Road/ Lower Addiscombe Road
  • Lower Addiscombe Road/Bingham Road
  • Sandilands tram stop
