King County Metro Transit wants to install eLockers at its International District/Chinatown Station’s street level central plaza. Currently, there are 10 eLocker locations in King County, each of which can park four bikes.
An increase in the number of eLockers will increase non-motorized access to the regional and local transit system. If new eLockers are installed in the International District (ID), eight benches will be removed from the area to accommodate the lockers because of the limited space.
Metro Transit’s on-demand eLockers are public bike storage spaces that are available to anyone with a BikeLink stored-value card. They are rented at $0.05 per hour. The card is prepaid, and cyclists are charged only for the time they use the eLockers. (end)
