The initial release of Fix Your Bike vouchers was a small pilot and there will be more opportunities to secure vouchers in the coming months. The Government will continue to work closely with industry during the pilot to monitor its impact and adapt the scheme as necessary before rolling it out more widely. Future releases of vouchers will also be informed by analysis of data available from the initial release, including on the geographical locations where vouchers were released and on the extent to which those accessing the vouchers were new or regular cyclists.
