Cycle Space

Cycle Space

Co-Researchers wanted designated spaces for cycles, and suggested a marking doors and platforms to indicated where these spaces could be accessed.

Would you like to see this in the Metro?

However I do think metro Should add a notice saying that people should only take bikes at stations on street level or with ramps like seaburn , east Boldon and university and stuff should be allowed and not central , Sunderland , park lane , felgate and south HYLTON

I agree that metro needs bike storage as a student I think I would be a lot easier and better for the environment then taking a taxi or additional bus

The accessibility for passengers with bicycles would influence my use of the metro significantly. At present the metro offers me zero use. If safe, accessible space for bicycles users including family cycling was to be implemented, it would be a game changer. Please though consult with bicycle user of varying abilities and uses to gain user representation on a wider level...I. e families, commuters, leisure, lycra cladded fast folk. Thank you!

I would like to see dedicated bike space on the new metro that does not put bikes in conflict with disabled passengers. They should have their own dedicated space as non-disabled passengers do. If the metro took bikes routinely
1. Metro deserts such as Heaton could become accessible by Metro
2. The potential for commuting to work is greater.
3. Family leisure cycling up and down our fantastic cycling coastline would become accessible to all.
The North SHields to South Shields passenger ferry takes quite a few bikes without problems - it is worth a look and is a fabulous day out!

This is a must. You could always stipulate no bikes allowed between central station and East Jesmond but it would be better of full size bikes were allowed throughout.

I would LOVE it if my kids and I could take our bikes on the train. I don't drive and it would mean we could go for bike rides out in the countryside rather than just around the town. When designing this kind of space please think about children travelling with parents. We need to travel in the same carriage and it's not possible for many of us to lift our bikes up. I think it would be fantastic if you offered this facility. It would certainly attract more weekend passengers.

Cycling and public transport should be linked whenever possible for a user-friendly system. Vertical hangers are used regularly throughout Europe and the system seems to work well, encouraging more users during less crowded times. We already use folded bikes on the Metro, why not regular ones?

Yeah that's a great idea . Like all that's been said below. Definitely identifying doors for bikes buggies suitcase fantastic suggestion. Sustainable integrated with public transport is the way forward

Allowing bikes on the Metro would increase the catchment area of the system considerably. There are obviously things to consider, like what happens at the city centre stations, but in general a dedicated space for bikes would mean they could be carried easily.

I commute from Sunderland to newburn in Newcastle. Would be great to leave the car at home and take the bike/metro instead.

Linking different forms of sustainable transport, such as cycling and metro, is fundamental to livable, healthy communities.
