e-Bike Charging Introduced at UK Rail Stations

Bikeep has been working with APCOA Parking and Govia Thameslink Railway to introduce its secure cycle storage and e-bike charging solution to UK rail stations.

The first of these facilities have been introduced at stations in Bedford and Harpenden, where customers can now access Bikeep’s individual smart bike racks to securely park and charge their e-bikes when continuing their journey by train.

David Gornall, Commercial Director at Govia Thameslink Railway, said:

“We’re pleased to be partnering up with APCOA and Bikeep to provide charging points for customers using electric bikes. In addition to EV charging points across our network, the new e-bike charging facilities at Bedford and Harpenden will support those making environmentally-friendly journeys to and from the station and will hopefully encourage more rail users to consider this mode of transport.”

As e-bikes are currently the most highly sold electric vehicle globally, these new facilities meet the increased demand for safe and convenient e-bike charging solutions.

Micromobility vehicles such as e-bikes are continuing to grow in popularity, yet many communities are not yet equipped with the supporting infrastructure. With limited space and peak-time restrictions on trains, cyclists are encouraged to leave their bikes at stations, but a combined storage and charging solution has previously not been available in the UK.

Bikeep CEO Kristjan Lind explains the benefits to cyclists:

“With a tap of a button on your smartphone, your bike is locked securely from two points with a huge steel bar, the station is overseen by CCTV, and any distress signals are forwarded to local security whilst an audible alarm sounds. In addition, the same station charges your e-bikes while you’re away. A truly smart solution for a 21st century urban commuter.”
