Transport for London wins an ATOC National Cycle-Rail Award
October 28, 2006
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.
