Enterprise Rent-A-Car, the world’s largest car rental company, and Brompton Bike Hire have joined forces to make the famous folding bikes available from Enterprise’s Russell Square branch in central London. Perfect for those longer, less convenient journeys and staycations, just pop it in the boot for the ultimate trip.
This is the first location where our bikes will be available other than the Brompton’s docks and you will be able to hire both car and bike or simply just a bike like at any of our other dock locations. The location will appear within the Brompton app on Wednesday and we hope the hub provides greater flexibility, encouraging people to use the most appropriate mode of travel for the journey.
To hire from this location is exactly the same as any other Brompton Dock except you get greeted with a smile by an Enterprise member of staff and the bike will be handed over to you once hire reservation is confirmed.
Ben Lawson, Vice President of Mobility at Enterprise said: “This is an exciting initiative which sits firmly with Enterprise’s commitment to support active travel and greater integration of types of transport. We hope to be able to extend the service we have at Russell Square to other Enterprise branches.”
Julian Scriven, Managing Director of Brompton Bike Hire said: “Enterprise and Brompton share a vision of encouraging people to use the most appropriate mode of travel for the journey they are taking. This pilot is hopefully the next step in developing this idea which has already proven so successful in other collaborative projects together.”
The Enterprise branch is at 49 Woburn Place, Russell Square, London, W1CH 0JZ, and bikes are available during opening hours which are 8am-6pm Monday to Friday and 9am to 12noon Saturday.
