Lock ’em up

New bike lockers for rent

The wraps came off the new bicycle lockup lockers located at the Sooke Park & Ride on Sooke Road. The storage compartment holds four bicycles and interested transit communters can rent the lockers for $10/year. The idea came from the Juan de Fuca Cycling Coaltion.

From left to right are: Mike Davis, Chief Operating Officer for BC Transit, Sooke Mayor Janet Evans, John Boquist with bicycle and Mark Ziegler. The box was painted by Tami McKay, Katrina Maki, Morgan Tallyn and Brianna Leno all EMCS students in the Advanced Placement Program.
