Cleaner deliveries for Bankside businesses

Help us to reduce freight through Bankside and make deliveries cleaner by using Bikes for Businesses.

Bikes for Business

Is your business looking to do something positive for the environment and reduce carbon emissions but just needs a little helping hand? You can get support from a local project, Bikes for Business, supported by Better Bankside.

Our transport consultants MP Smarter Travel will help identify which bicycle services are best suited to meet business needs, recommend an operator, offer up to £700 in subsidies, and support the business through these changes.

Bicycles and cargo bikes can offer a fast, clean alternative to motorised deliveries in London. Working with businesses along and around the Low Line, Bikes for Business is making zero-emission cargo bike deliveries the mainstream solution for business freight.

Embracing the use of bikes will enable London’s streets to become quieter, greener, safer, less polluted, more welcoming and more inclusive.

Why businesses are embracing pedal power:

  • Cleaner: Zero emission deliveries
  • More Efficient: Reliable journey times
  • Versatile: A full range of sizes and services
  • Enhanced Reputation: ISO:14001 accreditation
  • Loading and parking: Less infrastructure required.
