The ability to cycle to train stations is diminished by limited access to secure long-term bicycle parking available at stations without Parkiteers. Waiting lists for the limited bicycle lockers delays access and forces people to travel to the station by car.
There are beneﬁts to preventative health, parking demand management and amenity in encouraging residents to cycle to the station. A simple, inexpensive and effective strategy to increase the appeal of cycling to the station is to provide Parkiteers at the following stations:
Laburnum, Blackburn, Heatherdale, Ringwood East, Heathmont, Mooroolbark, Upper Ferntree Gully, Upwey, Tecoma, Belgrave, Jordanville, Mount Waverley, Syndal, Clayton, Sandown Park, and Yarraman.
The improved access, quality and security of the Parkiteer will bolster the appeal of cycling to the station for local residents and assist to reduce the strain on station car parking.
