OXFORD: Plans to install 40 foldable bikes for hire at Oxford Station have been delayed.
Ruth Hardy, of Brompton Dock, the firm behind the plan, said paperwork had been given to First Great Western, which manages the station, for an unveiling next Wednesday.
Commuters will have to wait at least a fortnight now, she said.
First Great Western spokesman Jane Jones said: “We are disappointed that the Brompton Dock cannot be installed next week. It is important that all the correct paperwork is completed.
“This is being done and the dock will be in position as quickly as possible.”
Passengers book a bike by text and pay £1.67 for up to £8 a day.
