Public Commuter Bicycle Station
As a bike commuter, I am always on the lookout for stories on how other cities around the country adapt to the growing number of bike commuters. I ran across this story and thought it would be good to share.
With all the empty buildings in downtown Atlanta, this would be a great concept. Especially in the Underground Atlanta area, with plenty of empty storefronts.
Would you as a bike commuter pay a membership fee to have access to such a facility?

Jan. 10--Federal stimulus money may pay for downtown St. Louis's first public commuter bicycle station.
St. Louis would use $225,000 of federal energy conservation economic stimulus money for the station on the first floor of the rehabilitated Farm and Home Building at 11th and Locust Street.
The station would have public showers, lockers and places to store bicycles. A bike repair shop would be nearby. Users would pay a membership fee. Officials hope to lure 100 people initially.
