Bicycle cages available at Victorian rail stations for commuters

Commuters using a combination of bicycle and train travel can now park their bicycles securely at 23 train stations across metropolitan Melbourne and in five regional centres.

Metropolitan Melbourne stations with bicycle cages:

Bayswater, Bentleigh, Brighton Beach, Broadmeadows, Caulfield, Cheltenham, Croydon, Eltham, Frankston, Glenroy, Hallam, Hoppers Crossing, Newport, Roxburgh Park, Sandringham, Surrey Hills, Watergardens and Werribee.

Regional Victorian stations with bicycle cages:

Ballarat, Bendigo, Castlemaine, Geelong and South Geelong.

Ten more cages will be built this year providing secure and weather protected storage for a total of 850 bikes.

The new bike cages will be managed and supported by Bicycle Victoria and will be known as ‘Parkiteer’ cages.  Each cage provides secure parking for around 25 bikes and is accessible via a Parkiteer swipe card for registered members. Anyone interested in becoming a bike cage user should visit the Parkiteer website or Parkiteer registration page.

If anyone can supply a photo of a finished Parkiteer we’d appreciate it.
