How To Use the SMART Bike Lockers

During the SMART grand opening, we got to speak with a lot of bicycle commuters. There were quite a few questions about the bike lockers from folks who’d never used them before.

The bike lockers are operated by BikeLink and cost about five cents per hour.¬† Insert your card to open a vacant locker, put your bike inside, close the door, and you’re good to go – no one else can open that locker until you insert your card again to log out. At this time, the lockers require a BikeLink card; these can be purchased (with a $20 value) online, at the SRJC bookstore, or at BikePartners.¬† “Why,” you might ask, “can’t I just use my Clipper Card?” We spoke with BikeLink recently, and they are working on making this possible¬† with a target launch date of spring 2018. In the video below, one of our SCBC volunteers demonstrates how to use the lockers.
