Transport for London wins an ATOC National Cycle-Rail Award

October 28, 2006

The Association of Train Operating Companies recognised TfL in the Cycle Parking Provision category for the Finsbury Park Cycle Park in its 2006 National Cycle-Rail Awards announced on Tuesday.

The FPCP is described as the UK’s largest automated, staffed cycle parking facility with security and cover for 125 cycles. It has 24-hour access, is staffed at peak times and has an individual, automated colour coded locking system, with a smartcard pre-payment facility.

The judges said the FPCP is an imaginative scheme which has been well conceived and resourced. The comprehensive package of security, shelter, lighting and staffing has enabled Finsbury Park to become a cyclists’ portal to the centre of London.

The Gatwick Express was highly commended in the Customer Service Excellence category because it welcomes all types of bicycle onto its trains at any time and is attracting people who wish to cycle in either Central London or to Sussex and Surrey.
