20140624_BikeHireLaunch02The NextBike mass bike hire scheme has been so successful in Glasgow that 10 new bike stations are to be set up in the south and east of the city bringing the total number to 41.

The move follows feedback from users and requests from businesses and the public. They will be set up at transport hubs and areas of high footfall where there is likely to be most demand.

Talks are also underway with NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde about expanding the scheme to include bike stations at hospital sites including the new South Glasgow Hospital.

The new bike stations will be located at Bridgeton Cross, Duke Street at Whitehill Street, the Barrowlands, Queen’s Park West, Govan Cross, Victoria Road/Calder Street, Cessnock Subway station, Gorbals leisure centre, Eglinton Toll and Paisley Road Toll.
