Active Commuting’s first facility was set up at GE Healthcare Ltd in August. The cyclist and runner hubs at the two hospitals have gone live from mid-March. The hub at the St Helier Hospital provide showers and lockers to over 100 staff, and adds another 28 secure bike parking spaces to the site. The Epsom General Hospital hub occupies five car parking spaces and provides 40 secure bike spaces, with separate male and female showers and changing rooms above the bike park. This is similar to the GE Healthcare hub which also takes up five parking spaces but caters to over 50 people.
Andrew Rechten, co-founder of Active Commuting, said: “All together across the three hubs, over 200 people a day will be using them, leaving their cars at home.”
