San Leandro BART to Get Electronic Bike Lockers

The BART Board decided at its January 24, 2008, meeting to install 198 electronic bicycle lockers at six East Bay BART stations, including San Leandro. The San Leandro station already has bicycle lockers, which are rented out to one person at a time for $30 a year. The BART Board also decided to increase the bicycle locker rental fee to $40 a year.

The lockers will be installed by late July 2008, can be opened and closed using a pre-paid charge card, and will cost three cents an hour. Funding for the lockers at the San Leandro BART station comes from the Alameda County Transportation Improvement Authority's Bike/Ped Countywide Discretionary Fund and the City of San Leandro.

3 cent per hour? Homeless can get a full night's sleep of shelter for less than a quarter; and then be in pole position to panhandle at the BART station--this sounds like a definitie win-win solution for all!!!
