Bike Depot expected to revolutionize bicycle commutation to NJ Transit stations

Montclair area commuters now have a secure place to store bicycles at the Bay Street train station. Today, Montclair Township, in partnership with the New Jersey Bike & Walk Coalition (NJBWC), unveiled a new Bike Depot – the first of its kind in the state – to provide safe, secure, weather-protected storage for bikes, helmets and personal items.

“Montclair wants to expand access to our six commuter train stations by providing alternative transportation options and the new Bike Depot is an integral part of this,” said Montclair’s Mayor Robert Jackson. “Not only is it another step toward becoming a more sustainable community by helping reduce vehicle emissions and lowering our carbon footprint, it also encourages residents to adopt a more healthful lifestyle. We thank all our sponsors for their generous support for this endeavor.”
