Bikeshare Complaints

Monday 5 February 2018

A number of people have contacted me about bikeshare bikes becoming a nuisance or safety risk when they are left blocking access or are a trip risk. There is no direct regulation of this new business model however in response to my questions in Parliament, the minister said the government will monitor the situation: HERE

Six inner city councils including the City of Sydney and Woollahra negotiated some controls with some operators: HERE. If bikes are left in problem areas, you can contact the bikeshare operator – there is a list on the web page above and contact details should be on the bike. Council may be able to move them if they are a danger or block access. I intend to follow up again with the minister when Parliament resumes.
