A Look at the Proposed Commuter Bike Station

Did you enjoy riding your bike down Locust as part of the Open Streets festivities this past weekend?

If so, you might have biked right by The 411, the proposed site of the St. Louis Commuter Bike Station. The group behind the bike station is still trying to raise $125,000 by June 30 to fund the project, and hopes to open later this summer.

The Commuter Bike Station would be an amazing addition to downtown St. Louis.  If more commuters were able to bike to work with the help of a facility like this, perhaps we wouldn't need so many parking garages.  Let's hope a generous benefactor will step up to help it meet its fund raising goal.

To get a better understanding of how the facility will look, here are some renderings:

How are they fundraising? Could they sell prospective memberships? I bet they could raise at least part of the money that way.
