Borough of Ealing boosts its sustainable active transport options

Tier e-bike in Ealing

Dockless e-bikes are now available in Ealing in a move that builds on the borough’s existing e-scooter trial.

A total of 500 e-bikes are being provided by micromobility company Tier, which already operates e-bikes in Hammersmith & Fulham and Islington as well as e-scooters in 10 London boroughs. It has operated e-scooters in Ealing since June 2021.

Councillor Deirdre Costigan, cabinet member for climate action said: “Cycling is a great alternative to getting in the car for shorter journeys and by supporting residents to make this positive shift, we will be able to slash the harmful emissions which cause air pollution and contribute to the climate crisis.

 “Getting on a bike has also been proven to do great things for mental and physical wellbeing, so choosing two wheels over four can really benefit everyone in the long-term.

“That is why I am delighted that Ealing Council has again worked to boost its provision of dockless e-bike hire in the borough. We want to help local people in all our town centres get quick, easy and cheap access to a bike, whether they use the hire scheme everyday as part of their commute, or just occasionally when it suits them.”

She added that the council is investing up to £10 million in active travel schemes to encourage walking, cycling and scooting wherever possible as part of an ambitious programme.

Georgia Yexley, general manager for UK and Ireland, TIER, said: “The more alternatives available the easier it is for Londoners to leave the car at home and choose active travel, cutting emissions and reducing congestion.”
