Bicycle Parking

What is a Bike Locker?

Bicycle lockers provide excellent, secure bicycle parking by improving protection from theft, vandalism and inclement weather. The lockers are designed to hold one bicycle each as well as bicycle gear such as panniers, locks, lights, etc.

 

Users will receive one key that will only open one locker. Each locker has a unique lock and key to provide maximum security.

How to Use a Bike Locker

To find your locker: Look for the number on the locker door. This number will match the number on your key. Remember, each locker unit contains two lockers with a different door on each end.
Insert the key fully into the lock.
Turn the key and the lock mechanism will pop out to provide a handle.
Turn this handle to release the lock.
Open the door.

Insert your bicycle rear wheel first with the front end facing the door.

Follow these same steps in reverse to close and lock your locker and remove the key.

Make sure the lock handle has been pushed back into the locker to firmly secure the door.

If you have any problems operating a bicycle locker please contact the bicycle locker program (see below).

Locker Dimensions

The space inside of a locker is approximately 1.2m (4') high x 1.9m (6' 5") deep x 0.9m (3') wide at the door and narrows toward the back of the locker. Most standard bicycles will fit inside. Longer bicycles such as tandem bikes or some recumbent bikes will not fit into the lockers.
