Barclays Cycle Hire on Google Maps sign now

Last year, Transport for London and Serco launched the Barclays Cycle Hire bike sharing scheme in London.

Alongside the existing public transport in London (trains, the tube, and buses), Barclays Cycle Hire allows anyone with a credit/debit card (casual use) or membership key to hire a bicycle to get around the city. TfL have said that the scheme is public transport, and as such, we believe that the cycle hire docking station locations should be added to Google Maps.

Google Maps already includes placemarks for other modes of public transport - railway stations, tube stations, and bus stops - so it only makes sense that placemarks are added for the various Cycle Hire docking stations around London. As there are no routes or timetables associated with the scheme, it should be a relatively simple process to add all the locations, and doubtless it would help out a lot of people.

The scheme is already used by over 100,000 members, who have made over 1.7 million journeys (as of November 2010), and with the scheme now open to everyone and summer approaching soon, not to mention the 2012 Olympic Games, these figures can only go up.

Adding placemarks for the docking stations on Google Maps benefits all parties involved - Google would get more views to maps, TfL would get more awareness and more business, and members of the public would have the convenience of seeing nearby docking stations on Google Maps within seconds using, for example, a smartphone or a PC.
