Transperth has announced that from February 2011 it will begin to install a new system of access to its Lock â€˜nâ€™ Ride Bike Shelters across the train system. Passengers will now be able to easily and securely use their SmartRider card to enter the shelters throughout the day and not be restricted by the current access hours.
As I understand it this service will continue to be provided for free.
If you are a regular rider to a train station you are encouraged to register your SmartRider for access to the shelter. To register for this service, simply complete the online registration.
Once the new system has been scheduled for installation at your station, Transperth will contact you and advise you of the commencement date.
There is also some discussion of this development in the Australian Cycling Forums.
