Cycle Hubs at Northern Stations

There are going to be changes to how you can access the five cycle hubs which TfGM operate at Northern stations in Greater Manchester.

The week commencing 16 December, TfGM will hand over the following hubs to Northern:

  • Oxford Road
  • Eccles
  • Salford Central
  • Hazel Grove
  • Ashton

There will be a short period of time when the hubs will be out of use, as Northern install their own security system to these facilities.

We would like to reiterate that these hubs are not being closed, but they will look different with new Northern branding in place and Transport for Greater Manchester’s (TfGM’s) card access equipment being removed and replaced by a pin-code system which will be administered by Northern.

In the short term, Northern will replace the card activated locks with pin entry locks. Access to these hubs can be obtained either from the station ticket office or by contacting Northern’s Customer Experience Centre on 0800 200 6060.

Northern will provide these facilities to its customers without a charge. As the hubs will be directly managed by the station owner, this means there will be 24-hour access available for customers.

Further details about how Northern will operate the hubs will appear on their website shortly.

We’re very sorry for any inconvenience this may cause, and any members affected can contact us at:
