Why we are consulting

Aberdeen City Council is undertaking a study to consider options for implementing a cycle hire scheme in the city. To help inform the study, we would be grateful if you could please take ten minutes to complete this survey to allow us to gather your views. The survey will consider; the level of interest in a cycle hire scheme, the kind of trips that the bikes might be used for and how the cycle hire scheme could operate.

All participants will be entered in to a prize draw with two £50 Tiso vouchers. If you would like to be entered in to the prize draw, then simply enter your email address.
