TriMet commits $1M to bike parking facilities

Posted on March 10, 2009

Portland, Ore.-based TriMet is dedicating $1 million of stimulus funding to expand and improve bike parking facilities throughout the transit system.

 

The funds will increase secure bike parking by 65 percent over the current 380 lockers, launch a bike parking pilot project that will add secure bike parking for 250 bikes at the Beaverton and Sunset transit centers, and replace 100 older bike lockers outside the Central Business District. Some of these replacements will test electronic lockers, which allow multiple riders to use them on any given day.

 

"More riders are using bikes to get to transit, and with limited options for bringing bikes on board, having more secure bike parking facilities helps to make the bike/transit connection work," said Fred Hansen, TriMet's GM. "We know that bikes and transit make the region more accessible and adding more facilities will make the bike/transit connection more reliable."
