Hi, I have to agree. I wouldn’t mind being charged so much if Barclays Cycle Hire first sent me a text to let me know an large sum of money was about to leave my account. What happens is charges rack up (usually due to docking issues) and suddenly I am left with no money in my account to pay my rent.
The way the system is rigged could leave some people in serious financial difficulty. And, applying logic, how many people will knowingly hire a bike for £150 – you could buy a bike for less?!
