Dero

Best Practice Bike Parking in Cambridge

    Dero is proud to be a part of this best practice in secure, long-term bike parking on the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA)’s Red Line in Cambridge. The above film produced by StreetFilms showcases one of the few unstaffed, secure bike parking facilities linked with transit in the United States. The facility, located at the T’s Alewife station, is a bike commuter’s dream.  It includes hundreds of bike parking spaces, both traditional and stacked Dero racks as well as a secure cage with smart card operation, protective canopy and video monitoring. This marks a fantastic example of a transit agency taking tranporatation planning beyond the transit route to the critical last mile. In this case, the location connects Cambridge and other suburbs as well as The Minuteman Bikeway to the greater Boston area. Unbelieveably, it’s absolutely free to use! Our thanks to Streetfilms for the great video!
