Mass Transit Systems Grow Light Rail and Bus Passenger Ridership with Bike and Ride Programs That Provide Convenient, Secure Bike Parking Solutions.
Mass transit systems are attracting more passengers through bike and ride initiatives that include convenient, secure transit center bike parking solutions. Bike-and-ride facilities that provide bike parking at transit hubs for two-step, multi-mode commutes are making public transportation a practical option for commuters–overcoming distance, inconvenience, and other barriers. Cleaner air, less traffic congestion, healthier lifestyles, convenient commutes, lower transportation costs, less wear and tear on (and for some urban commuters no need for) motor vehicles, make bicycling to light rail or bus transit stations an appealing choice.
They did the best job of meeting our specifications, and we’re planning on getting some more. We had a terrible experience with other locker brands, the construction was very poor, and were just trashed by vandals. With CycleSafe there have been no break-ins and are maintenance-free for our operations people. The overall ease of use is a very attractive feature for us, CycleSafe proved itself. We’re very pleased with the product and would certainly like to expand the program. Now it requires some good planning on our part to determine the best locations for additional lockers.
Key to successfully growing ridership through bike and ride programs is ample, safe, and secure mass transit bike parking and storage. CycleSafe bike parking solutions offer a wide range of bike racks, bike lockers, bike shelters, bike corrals, and other mass transit bike storage solutions. We work with mass transit systems, transportation planners, metropolitan councils, local governments, community development groups, and others to integrate convenient, secure, cost-efficient mass transit bike parking solutions into their local and regional mass transit plans.
