A MINI BIKE GARAGE FOR COMMUTERS

NPR - Just outside Washington, D.C.'s central train station, construction is under way on a sleek, modern, glass-and-metal bike garage. . . Once completed, the Bikestation will hold 130 bikes, lockers and a small shop for repairs. Located next to the Metro subway exit at Union Station, the system will provide secure bike storage for commuters who want to cycle through Washington once they arrive from feeder cities like Baltimore. . . Levered arms inside the bike garage allow bicycles to be stored one on top of the other.
