Bikeplus is the representative body for UK bike share. Although bike share schemes are operated by the private sector, the public sector and some cases large employers and community groups, are responsible for many aspects of development. Bikeplus aims to support these groups to get the most out of this process.

Bikeplus roles can be summarised into four key functions:

  1. Analyse data to provide evidence of for the benefits of bike share schemes:
  1. Sharing information on:
  1. Delivering pioneering projects to ensure the social and environmental benefits are maximised and evenly spread:
  1. Partnership and development support:
  • Stakeholder Forums
  • Providing an Accreditation Service assessing operator credentials on behalf of the public sector
  • Consultation for early scheme proposals and feasibility studies
  • Strategic partnerships with UK and overseas sustainable and shared transport organisations
