Department for Transport officials have met representatives of bike-share companies operating in the UK, as well as local authority representatives where they are trading. The Department also held a workshop in January 2018 where national standards were discussed. The Department is not currently developing a national standard, pending investigation into the use of existing powers and byelaws. Officials are liaising with Transport for London colleagues to investigate the potential for bye-laws to be used as a tool for local authorities to develop consistent bike-sharing standards.
