In the Williams-Shapps Plan for Rail and the Gear Change Cycling and Walking Strategy the government committed to increasing space for cycles on existing trains wherever practically possible and to include more cycle spaces on all future train fleets. We will assess the merits of different levels of provision before we require operators to increase provision for the carriage of cycles on trains.
