Over the last 8 years the number of dedicated cycle parking stands on railway station platforms and station forecourts across the region has increased by around 100%. This is both a response to the increasing popularity of cycling and a result of trying to encourage more people to cycle to and from the station as part of the wider objective of increasing public transport patronage.
The provision of cycle facilities at railway stations consists of a mix of secure cycle racks, cages, and lockers provided.
Figure 7-1 shows the 5 year trend and targets for cycle parking facilities at railway stations. In 2015 there were a total of 336 cycle storage spaces available to commuters at railway stations across the region. Cycle storage spaces at railway stations have increased steadily up to 2014 with cycle facilities showing an increase at most stations across the region.

The above figure shows the 5 year trend and targets for cycle parking facilities at railway stations. In 2018 there were a total of 361 cycle storage spaces available to commuters at railway stations across the region. Cycle storage spaces at railway stations continue to increase across the region as demand grows.
