Bike lockers available in RestonFairfax County is now renting bike lockers at the Reston East Park and Ride Lot. Many people who currently use the lot drive from nearby residential areas. These small trips by car are the most inefficient and polluting trips made. Biking to transit is an excellent alternative, especially now that secure, covered bike lockers are available for rent from the county.
The fee structure is: $10 admin fee, $60 annual rental fee, and $50 key deposit. To encourage use of the lockers, for a limited time the county is waiving the $10 admin fee and lowering the annual rental fee from $60 to $40. The total first-year cost now is $90, $50 of which is refundable.
The Reston East lot is on Wiehle Ave, very close to the W&OD Trail. If you know someone who could use this service, please let them know.
To rent a locker call the county bike line, 703-324-BIKE (703-324-2453). You can also use that number to request on-road bike lanes, report dangerous bicycle conditions, etc.
