Dockless bike hire in Camden

We are working with dockless electric bike operator Lime and Forest (formerly HumanForest). Bikes can be hired through a smartphone app and used in a similar way to Transport for London (TfL) Santander bikes.

Dockless bikes must be picked up and dropped off in designated docking bays which can be found on the app. People not following parking guidelines and restrictions will receive a warning or fine.

Forest e-bike locations

Dockless bike hire operators provide detailed information on compulsory parking bays in which all trips must start and finish. The borough has a network of over 200 e-scooter and bike hire parking bays to make sure all of our communities have access to these vehicles and parking locations.

If you would like to suggest a location for a new docking bay for e-scooter and bike hire, or have concerns about an existing location, email [email protected]

Report an obstruction

The quickest way to report a hire bike or e-scooter causing an obstruction is to contact the operator directly.

E-scooter hire trial in Camden

Transport for London (TfL) has launched an electric scooter hire trial across parts of London. Dott, Lime, and Voi have been selected as service operators by TfL and London Councils. 

All three operators have experience of providing rental e-scooters in other European cities. In addition, Lime currently provide dockless hire bikes in London, including Camden. 

We are committed to exploring options for sustainable forms of transport and ways to tackle the climate crisis. Rental e-scooters could provide an alternative mode of travel that is emission free while being used for commuting, accessing local services, and leisure trips. 

This would meet our Camden Transport Strategy policies, which include our aspiration to “develop and implement a range of initiatives that promote and provide attractive, convenient and safe alternatives to private cars and other forms of motor traffic”.

The Camden Citizens’ Assembly on the Climate Crisis has developed 17 actions that should be taken by residents, community groups, businesses and Camden Council to tackle the climate crisis. Taking part in the trial would also help meet action 10 which is to enable electric transport with infrastructure and incentives. If you would like to make any comments on the ongoing trial, you can have your say on the Council's Safe and Healthy Streets Commonplace website which allows residents and stakeholders to give feedback during the trial period.
