<P>For passengers travelling to Leeds, the CyclePoint rental service provides a new way of completing their journeys. In addition to the new facilities for passengers, CyclePoint has important benefits for the city as a whole, as we explain in the following pages. The project is also an exciting example of what can be achieved when like-minded parties come together and work in partnership. I am delighted that we found such partners in Network Rail and Metro in Leeds, among others. This short brochure explains the history of CyclePoint and how Abellios commitment to the exchange of international best practice brought the pilot scheme to Leeds. I hope you find it interesting and that CyclePoint is a stimulating and positive contribution to life in the city. Anton Valk Chief Executive Abellio Group The launch of the countrys first CyclePoint at Leeds station has put this great city at the heart of a revolution that is taking place across the nation. Recently, there has been an explosion in cycling throughout the UK. I have seen it myself as I cycle to work each day. It is clear that there is a growing appreciation of the benefits cycling can bring to peoples health, the environment, reducing travel congestion, and making cities pleasant places to live. And, of course, cycling is a great hobby too. As a result, demand has grown for innovative facilities which make cycling in cities just as convenient as any other aspect of modern life. I am proud that Leeds CyclePoint is among the first of these responses anywhere in the country to the surge in cyclings popularity. Abellio will continue to develop facilities for cyclists across our Northern Rail and Merseyrail franchises* so that we remain at the forefront of this new trend and contribute to the plans many cities are developing for integrated cycle networks. At Abellio, our aim has always been to provide transport services which improve quality of life for passengers and across the communities we serve. CyclePoint, which is based on the best facilities for cyclists at Dutch railway stations, is a great example of this philosophy. We believe it is part of our responsibility to make our passengers end-to-end journeys as stress-free as possible. By providing secure storage in a new building with dedicated staff, CyclePoint removes the anxiety we know passengers feel when leaving bikes at station. Its location right next to Leeds station entrance means it will be much more convenient for cyclists to catch the train. *Operated in partnership with Serco Welcome to the UKs first CyclePoint</p> <UL><LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1588/lpzzdhpvl/1/1/">Front-Cover</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1588/lpzzdhpvl/2/2/">Inside-Front-Cover</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1588/lpzzdhpvl/3/3/">Page-3</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1588/lpzzdhpvl/4/4/">Page-4</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1588/lpzzdhpvl/5/5/">Page-5</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1588/lpzzdhpvl/6/6/">Page-6</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1588/lpzzdhpvl/7/7/">Page-7</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1588/lpzzdhpvl/8/8/">Page-8</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1588/lpzzdhpvl/9/9/">Page-9</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1588/lpzzdhpvl/10/10/">Page-10</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1588/lpzzdhpvl/11/11/">Page-11</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1588/lpzzdhpvl/12/12/">Page-12</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1588/lpzzdhpvl/13/13/">Page-13</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1588/lpzzdhpvl/14/14/">Page-14</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1588/lpzzdhpvl/15/15/">Page-15</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1588/lpzzdhpvl/16/16/">Page-16</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1588/lpzzdhpvl/17/17/">Page-17</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1588/lpzzdhpvl/18/18/">Page-18</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1588/lpzzdhpvl/19/19/">Page-19</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1588/lpzzdhpvl/20/20/">Back-Cover</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publications/1588/x/sitemap.xml" target="_blank">site map</a></LI> </UL>
