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
Future, Transport for NSW’s plan to make bicycle riding a feasible transport option, and will be delivered as a part of the NSW Government’s Transport Access Program.
In partnership with council, bike paths are being built that will link up Parramatta River, the CBD and beyond.
