Capital Metro waives annual fee to store bikes in shelters at transit stations


As of Aug. 1, Capital Metro is no longer charging riders an annual fee to store their bicycles in the transit agency’s MetroBike storage shelters, according to a news release.

The agency has bike shelters at the Lakeline, Kramer, Highland, MLK and Plaza Saltillo MetroRail stations as well as at the Tech Ridge Park & Ride and the South Congress Transit Center.

Riders previously had to pay a $30 annual fee to use the shelters but will now only have to pay $3 to register for an access card to the shelters. The card expires every two years and requires a new $3 fee to renew, according to a news release.

Bike shelters allow transit riders to store their bikes in a secure area that has 24-hour video surveillance as well as seating, an air pump and work stand and tools for minor repairs, according to Capital Metro.
