MCCA Celebrates Bike Month with Bike Cage Installation
Boston- In the spirit of Bike Month, the Massachusetts Convention Center Authority (MCCA) is excited to announce the installation of the all new Boston Common Garage bike cage. Set to open in early June, “The Wheelhouse” will hold a capacity of 40 bikes and be located just inside the Boston Common Garage (BCG), across from the management and public safety offices. This new public amenity will offer free short term bicycle storage 24/7 and feature a repair station complete with tire pumps and hand tools. Long term bicycle storage will also be available for a fee at the garage.
The announcement of the bicycle storage facility supports the City of Boston’s goal to reduce the region’s carbon footprint and provide dry, safe and secure environments for cyclists. This new installment adds to the MCCA’s support and encouragement of city cycling with the BCG’s existing complimentary bike lending program running from April to September. The “Wheelhouse” also comes as the latest of several improvements made by the BCG aimed at improving customer experience.
Garage enhancements made over the last year include a scanner system that allows customers to reserve parking spaces online, prior to arrival, and also offers discounted rates. The BCG has also piloted an umbrella loaning program for those unexpected rainy days. Additional complimentary features at the garage include EV and battery charging, car tire inflation, vehicle location, and assistance with sites and directions.
