Streetfilms: Commutah Bike Pahking in Cambridge
In the greater Boston area, a secure bike parking facility has been erected at the end of the T’s Red Line in Cambridge. It boasts
one incredible amenity: it’s completely free!
Alewife Station, perfectly situated at the edge of the burbs, serves as an inter-modal link for cyclists on The Minuteman Bikeway,
one of the most popular rail trails in the US. The
Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) fast-tracked the two unmanned bike cages, which hold hundreds of bicycles
in a secure, covered area, protected by high-tech surveillance. From
the crowded weekday parking action we saw — with hundreds of bikes
parked outside the cage on supplemental racks — it looks like a hit.
