A scheme to hire out folding bicycles to commuters has been introduced at Bristol Temple Meads railway station.
Passengers are able to rent Brompton bikes after having pre-registered and paid.
Bristol is the sixth location in the UK where the scheme has been introduced. It will be officially launched on Tuesday.
The project is a partnership between First Great Western and Brompton Dock - a sister company of Brompton Bicycles.
Steve Tyler, from First Great Western, said it would "encourage cycling while enabling more people to bring a bike on board our services".
