Bikestation is set to unveil its newest bicycle parking facility outside of Union Station on Friday during a ribbon-cutting ceremony, scheduled for 10:30 a.m. The grand opening is hosted by Bikestation, the District Department of Transportation, and Bike and Roll.
Our D.C. blogger Alex Pazuchanics will be covering the event. (See the official invitation below.)
See our previous post about this new bike-transit center, written by Noah Kazis, who said that the new facility will be convenient and popular among existing riders, and “it is a major symbolic statement that bikes are an important part of the transportation infrastructure of the District.”
From the Bikestation Web site:
Bikestation Washington, D.C., which will house over 100 bicycles in 1,600 sq. ft. of free-standing ultra-modern glass and steel design, is part of a growing network of Bikestations and related transit centers springing up in cities across the U.S. that are planned, implemented and often operated by Mobis Transportation/Bikestation. As a completely secure facility available by membership, Bikestation Washington, D.C. represents this new approach to alternative transportation. The facility will be staffed 66 hours per week and available to members 24/7. In addition to secure bike parking, the facility also provides a changing room, lockers, bike rental, bike repair and retail sales. The Bikestation location at Union Station allows commuters to take public transportation to the station, pick up their bicycles and go to work, shopping or entertainment.
Bikestation Washington DC will be staffed by Bike and Roll Washington DC during the following hours:
WEEKDAYS: 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
WEEKENDS: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
24/7 Access for Members.
