…and this time, the Council staff are the first to get to use it, with the trial scheme started mainly to, it seems, enable them to skip the work car when going on business trips from their Council offices. It is hoped the system can later be expanded.

A nice idea, and a good way to get Council staff experiencing the joys – and issues – of cycling in their city. When will Auckland Transport do something great like this for their staff’s offices?
