LIRR Bike Locker Program Transferred to Town
Administration of the bicycle locker program at LIRR stations in the Town of Huntington was recently transferred from the State to the Town. Thirty-eight bike lockers are available for commuters at the Huntington Station, Cold Spring Harbor, Greenlawn, and Northport LIRR stations.
“All ownership and operations of this program are being transferred by the State to the Town at no cost,” said program sponsor and Town Councilman Mark Cuthbertson.
Residents and those interested in receiving a no-cost one-year bike locker lease should apply to Town Clerk Jo-Ann Raia’s Office. Currently, vacant lockers will be offered free of charge on a “first come–first served” basis to new applicants who apply between Monday, Oct. 15 and Thursday, Nov. 15 [extension period]. The usual $60 rental fee will be waived.
If more applications are received post-marked the same date than the number of available lockers, the Town Clerk will conduct a “lottery” to assign the lockers to the winning applicants. At the conclusion of this incentivized program, the usual annual rental fee of $60 will apply.
Each locker is six feet long, four feet high and at least three feet wide, and will easily fit most bicycles. The Town requires a $40 key deposit, which is refunded at the termination of the lease. No sub-leasing is permitted.
“In addition to being eco-friendly, using a bicycle to get to the train station supports and encourages a healthy lifestyle. It’s a great program that I look forward to seeing flourish and grow,” said Cuthbertson.
For more information on the Bicycle Locker Program, contact Councilman Mark Cuthbertson at 631-351-3171 or the Town Clerk at 631-351-3206 to register.
