ABC (Australia) - - NEWS -

Cy­clists in Par­ra­matta will soon have ac­cess to 50 ex­tra secure spa­ces, fol­low­ing the an­nounce­ment of the con­struc­tion of a new Opal ac­ti­vated bike shed.

New South Wales Mem­ber for Par­ra­matta Ge­off Lee says the use of the bike sheds will be free for cy­clists and can be ac­cessed us­ing their Opal cards.

Lee says the bike shed is a great win for Par­ra­matta cy­clists who catch public trans­port as part of their daily com­mute.

All cus­tomers need to do is link their Opal card through the bike lock­ers web­site and they’ll have ac­cess to any of the other bike sheds in­tro­duced in the fu­ture as well.

These fa­cil­i­ties are part of the Bike and Ride ini­tia­tive, which is iden­ti­fied in Syd­ney’s Cy­cling
