Whatever Serco did in the summer with the software upgrade seems to have made things so much better (for me) Ive had several weeks of uninterrupted use – able to get a bike our when I want and when I need and bike ditro seems to be a bit more sorted (certainly around the areas I use).
Well done all – really loving this scheme now. Roll on the roll out!
I agree the Boris Bikes have got much more reliable in the last few months. I got really fed up and stopped using them last autumn because they were so unreliable. I had repeated instances of not being able to get bikes out of docking stations. I started using them again in January and since then have not had a single instance of not being able to get a bike out. Hooray! Also the length of time you have to wait to get a green light is now much less!
