Bike-n-Ride Shelter Interior

Looking to shake up your daily commute routine? Look no further! The City and County of Broomfield, in collaboration with RTD and Commuting Solutions, has unveiled three brand-new Bike-n-Ride shelters in Broomfield along the US 36 corridor.

Bike-n-Ride shelters provide easy access to a designated space where you can store and lock your bicycle while using RTD transit. Bicycling can be a convenient option to more quickly get to and from the station.

These new shelters in Broomfield join the existing location at the westbound US 36 & Broomfield Station, are now open for public use. The shelters are conveniently situation along the US 36 Bikeway at US 36 Bus Rapid Transit stations including the eastbound US 36 & Broomfield Station, as well as both the east and westbound US 36 & Flatiron Stations. With these new additions, the northwest metro region now boasts a total of twelve Bike-n-Ride shelter locations offering commuters even more options to integrate cycling into their transit journeys.

Providing secure bicycle parking at transit station was one of the top nine first-and-final mile recommendations from the US 36 First & Final Mile study.

Here are five things to know to help you get started with using these new shelters:

1. Bike-n-Ride Shelters Give You Options!

Gaps in the first-and-final mile often present a barrier when you are considering transit commuting. The Bike-n-Ride shelter program helps solve that problem allowing you to bike to/from a transit station without having to cart your bike along for the whole trip.

2. Bike-n-Ride Shelters Are User Friendly!

Using the Bike-n-Ride shelters is a breeze! Simply walk your bike into the shelter and secure it in the provided space using your lock. Ample storage space is available at all shelter locations.

3. Applying for Shelter Access is Easy!

Before you can use the new Broomfield Bike-n-Ride shelters, you will need to apply for access. Complete the brief application to qualify.

4. Bike-n-Ride Shelters are Spacious, More Secure, and Weather-Resistant!

Each shelter location comes with plenty of space to store your bike and bike accessories, and equipment can be easily secured via bike lock.

Since Colorado weather can wear down bike gear, the shelters were designed as enclosed structures for weather-proof space that can protect your bicycle from the elements.

5. Expanded Network of Bike-n-Ride Shelters
