The LCHS is a public bicycle hire scheme for London, which was launched in July 2010 (commonly known as Boris Bikes, more recently as Sadiq Cycles) and provides more than 12,000 bicycles for hire from over 750 docking stations and 19,500 docking points within a central London area of 100km2. The scheme was expanded to East London in March 2012 and launched in South West London in December 2013.
The scheme includes physical on-street assets (bicycles), which can be hired from and returned to docking stations placed around various locations within central and inner London. Each docking station includes at least one terminal which customers interact with for setting up access to hire. Each terminal is connected to docking points where the bicycles are physically docked for hire and return. Supporting the scheme are back office and on-street systems and operations.
The Cognito iQ solution will be provided to over 120 LCHS field workers for the purpose of Bike Redistribution and Bike Maintenance.
