AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Capital Metro in Austin has opened its first secured, fully-enclosed bicycle shelter for transit users.
The site opened Monday at Kramer Station. Agency officials say as many as six more MetroBike shelters are planned within two years.
The shelter is a way for riders to combine bicycle travel with bus and rail line use, but not take their bikes on board. The shelter has key card access with space for 24 bicycles, plus video surveillance and a spot for minor bike repairs.
One year shelter passes cost $30. Access cards are limited to the first 50 customers.
Capital Metro spokeswoman Francine Pares (puh-REZ') said Monday that access cards are still available. She says the agency is encouraging riders to leave bicycles at the shelter no longer than 24 hours.
