News You Can Use: Bike Parking

8 Dec

Did you know that NJ TRANSIT provides free parking capacity for about 2,300 bicycles at stations and park & ride locations? Racks are located at about 90 percent of the train stations in New Jersey, at several bus park & ride lots along the Route 9 corridor, at a number of bus terminals, and at most Hudson-Bergen Light Rail and River LINE stations. Bicyclists must provide their own locks and assume responsibility for their bicycles. To find bike rack locations throughout the NJ TRANSIT system, click here.

Additionally, approximately 375 enclosed, secure, locked bike lockers are available for long-term rental at a number of locations around the state. Rentals are administered locally by Transportation Management Associations or municipalities.

The Greater Mercer TMA administers the bike lockers at the Hamilton, Point Pleasant Beach, and Princeton Junction train stations. While there are often waiting lists for bike locker rentals, we currently have spots available at the Princeton Junction train station. A bike, helmet, and some gear can fit easily into the lockers at each station.

If you’re interested in renting a bike locker at Princeton Junction, please contact us at (609) 452-1491 or email us at rhersh@gmtma.org.
