At 3pm today, Oak Grove Station joins the 12 Pedal and Park community facilities to open across the Greater Boston area. The federally funded American Recovery & Reinvestment Act and the Community Multiscale Air Quality Acts provided Massachusetts $6.1 million to construct 12 “Pedal & Parks” and 50 covered bike racks at MBTA transit and bus stations in the Boston area. This program follows the success of the three Pedal & Parks opened in Alewife and Forest Hills in 2008. The general public sentiment is that customers are more likely to bike to transit if they are provided with a secure place to leave their bikes. For more information, log onto http://www.mbta.com.
To use the Pedal & Park cage, you need to get a Bike Charlie Card which will allow you to get into the locked cage, then you need to register it with the MBTA. You can get a Bike Charlie Card from the Oak Grove T station between Monday and Sunday from 7am to 7pm. Many other stations are also possible – just ask the MBTA Service Agent at a station and it is very possible they will have them. Once you have your Bike Charlie Card, register the card online. That’s it! You can use your Bike Charlie Card for your T fares as well as opening the Pedal & Park Cage.
