Your Federal Stimulus Money At Work: TriMet Will Keep Your Bike Safe...Partially

Beaverton TC Sheet Set 3

Here's a move that should make TriMet-riding bicyclists happy at a time when many TriMet users are unhappy over proposed service cuts.

TriMet announced today it will build new bike lockers and renovate some older ones with $1 million in federal stimulus money.

-Replacing 100 lockers in the Central Business District, and testing an electronic locker system “which allow multiple riders to use them on any given day.”
