The MBTA today opened its second bike cage location and first in Boston with a promise of more locations to come, as Transportation Secretary James Aloisi joined Acting General Manager William Mitchell, local officials and bike advocacy groups in the opening of the bike cage at Forest Hills Station on the Orange Line.
The increasingly popular cages allow bicyclists a secure place to store their bikes in camera-monitored cages accessible only by special Bike Charlie Cards. The Forest Hills cage has room for approximately 100 bikes.
The first T Bike Cages were located at the Alewife Station on the Red Line in Cambridge. Federal stimulus funds totaling $4.8 million under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act have been designated to expand bicycle parking facilities at T stations. An additional 10 bike cages and 50 covered bike racks will be installed systemwide using stimulus funds. Bike Charlie Cards are available at Alewife and Forest Hills Stations from a customer service agent, and at the Downtown Crossing Customer Service Center. Or, visit the T on the web to get your Card.
