Leicester cargo bike service a success
12.11.08 by Buffalo Bill
I don’t know that I would call it a courier service, but it certainly is a bicycle delivery service, so I guess we can stretch a point. The £2 charge seems terrifyingly cheap, but I guess the scheme is publicly funded.
Hundreds of people struggling to carry home their market shopping have been given help by a new delivery service. A month after its launch, Leicester’s cycle courier service has been hailed a success. It is now set to extend its delivery times.
The service was aimed at elderly and disabled shoppers who have difficulty getting around the city centre. Fruit and vegetables are delivered for free by bike, straight from Leicester’s market to residents’ homes, anywhere within the city.
