"Pedal & Park" is the name of MBTA secured bike cages to offer a healthy option for commuters using public transportation. MBTA GM Rich Davey announced the "Pedal & Park" name as the winner in a contest to name the cages during ceremonies at South Station, where a secure bike facility is under construction with completion later this summer. Increasingly popular Pedal & Park cages are now open at Alewife and Forest Hills, accessible only with special Bike Charlie Cards. More bike facilities will open during the next year.
