Township council pushing for bike lockers

On the day that TransLink confirmed a regular bus service between the new park and ride at 86 Avenue and 202 Street and the Braid Street Skytrain Station, Township council voted unanimously to ask the transportation authority to install at least 10 bicycle lockers.

The park and ride, also known as the Langley Transit Exchange, is due to open in December.

On Sept. 17, only hours after TransLink also announced that commuters will have to pay for parking there, council unanimously backed Councillor Charlie Fox’s motion called for TransLink to install a minimum of 10 lockers where cyclists can store their bikes before they ride the Rapid Bus to Braid and beyond.

Fox noted that the lockers, which he would like to see located in a well-lit and secure area of the park and ride, compliments TransLink’s desire to see people access the transit exchange in a “green” way.

Councillor David Davis suggested that 10 lockers probably wouldn’t be enough.

“We should have them all over the place,” he said.
