Since I launched my public call for the West Midlands Beryl Bikes to be expanded down to Worcestershire, I’m pleased to report progress.
I have meetings scheduled with Beryl, and with Serco who designed the scheme. I also have a meeting booked with Transport for West Midlands.
I’m grateful to West Midlands Cycling Commissioner Adam Tranter, and to Allan Andrews in the office of the Mayor of the West Midlands for their assistance in progressing this issue.
The idea is to simply expand the Beryl Bike cycle hire service down from Birmingham so that, one day, a person can cycle from Bromsgrove, Kidderminster or Redditch on a hire cycle and end their journey in Birmingham. Simples. Thank you.
