ScotRail open new Cycle Hub at Glasgow Queen Street station

ScotRail open new indoor Cycle Hub at Glasgow Queen Street station as part of the redevelopment of the station.

It is hoped that this will make it easier for passengers to have a sustainable journey by creating demand for more cycling to commuter stations.

Situated at the North Hanover Street entrance to the station the Cycle Hub is fully lit and monitored by CCTV.

The indoor Cycle Hub has the capacity to store 38 bicycles.

Another canopy covered Cycle Hub bike rack is set to be installed in the coming weeks on North Hanover Street which can hold a further 26 bicycles.

There are currently 36 outside cycle spaces located on the Dundas Street side of the station.

20 of these spaces are managed by Glasgow City Council as part of the Nextbike scheme.

The Cycle Hub is open from 7am until 10pm however passengers can arrange access outside of these hours by speaking with station staff.

Andrew Marshall-Roberts, ScotRail Economic Development & Communities Manager spoke on the importance of integrated travel links across the ScotRail network.

Mr Marshall-Roberts said: “We’re fully committed to creating a more sustainable and integrated transport network across Scotland.

“We want to join up journeys across the country, and that includes customers whose journeys start and end by bike.

“As life gradually gets back to normal following the pandemic, we’re seeing more and more customers using bikes as part of their daily commute or leisure travel.

“We are confident that the new Cycle Hub at Glasgow Queen Street will encourage more people to use bikes as part of their journey.”

Once all the refurbishments have taken place Glasgow Queen Street will have the capacity for a total of 100 bicycles.

ScotRail introduced the first of its Highland Explorer carriages on the West Highland Line.

These carriages are designed to house 20 ordinary bikes, a limited number of tandem cycles and an e-bike charging socket.
