New bike lockers at Buttermilk lot

Staff report

The city of Aspen’s Parks and Open Space Department has installed 20 new bike lockers at the Buttermilk parking lot in an effort to help commuters who take the bus or drive upvalley switch to bikes for the last few miles of their commute.

The bike locker program is a compliment to the city’s bicycle and pedestrian master plan, which in part aims to make expand bicycling opportunities in Aspen.

The lockers are available through Nov. 15 for a $25 rental fee from the Aspen Parking Department on a first come, first serve basis. The lockers are all named after a Colorado 13ers in the Elk Range. Each renter will be issued a key to a specific locker that is theirs for the season.

The 2019 rental period is April 15 through Nov. 15.
