Commonsense over bikes on the DLR is welcome news – Caroline Pidgeon

January 17, 2014 5:32 PM

Caroline Pidgeon, Leader of the Liberal Democrat London Assembly Group, commenting on today's announcement that Transport for London will permanently permit bicycles on off-peak Docklands Light Railway trains said:

"This is an incredibly welcome decision. I am not surprised at all that the recent trial allowing non-folding bicycles on the DLR has been a success as there was no real argument to support the total prohibition of bikes being allowed on the DLR.

"For too many years both the Mayor and TfL have made feeble excuses to exclude people taking bikes on the DLR at off-peak hours, which has created huge problems for cyclists especially if they wanted to cross the Thames."
