TfL to double the cost of hiring Boris Bikes

London mayor Boris Johnson has announced he'll double 'Boris Bike' access charges. The daily charge will rise from £1 to £2. The weekly charge doubles to £10 and the annual sub will jump from £45 to £90.

Evening Standard reporter Ross Lydall tweeted

"£90 for annual Borisbike subscription? I only want to hire a bike, Boris, not buy one."

Transport for London said: "The majority of cycle hire trips are made within the free 30 minute usage charge period and additional charges for late return, non return and bicycle damage will not increase."
