BART could authorize the expansion of its electronic bike locker program Thursday.
In 2007, the agency began its BikeLink program, which allowed passengers to park their bikes for longer periods of times at BART stations. Participants in the plan were given an electronic card, which gave them access to a locked room to store their bike.
At its meeting Thursday, BART’s Board of Directors could increase the program. Currently, there are 206 lockers in eight stations, but with authorization Thursday, 1,016 more locker spaces could be coming to BART stations.
If approved, the expansion project would cost $2.3 million. Regional and local grants will help pay for the program.
This article was corrected on Thursday, Feb. 10. The original article misstated the number of current and pending bike lockers. There are currently 206 lockers at eight stations and 1,016 more could be pending.
