SFRTA Launches Bike Locker Program
The South Florida Regional Transportation Authority (SFRTA) in Pompano Beach, FL, operator of Tri-Rail commuter rail, recently introduced its first Bicycle Locker Program at the West Palm Beach Station. The program provides space for 36 bicycles in 18 perforated-sheet steel lockers, each with a diagonal divider and separate door entries on either end.
SFRTA will install the lockers at the other 17 Tri-Rail stations over the next few months, ultimately providing about 600 lockers for bicycle and bike accessory storage for a registration fee of $37 for six months and $64 for a year. Users may also register for a second locker for half price should they want to store a bicycle at both their origin and destination stations. A refundable $30 security deposit covers the cost of one lock and two keys.
“More and more commuters are turning to bicycles for their commute to and from our train stations,” said SFRTA Executive Director Joseph Giulietti. “It’s a healthy, economical, and environmentally responsible choice, and one that we want to support however we can.”
