But what they’ve done is crucially launch the eastern extension WITHOUT intensification (increasing capacity) in the centre.

If they’d done that then redistribution issues would be much more manageable.

Moreover, a large docking station where you can pick up 30 bikes in one go and then dump them at another docking station 15 minutes later makes redistribution much easier than the 10-15 bike docking stations that are relatively common in Central London. It means those 30 bikes have to be redistributed in 3 different places, which significantly increases redistribution times, especially with Central London’s congested streets and difficult one-way systems.
