Secure Bike Parking Downtown

From Bike Pittsburgh:

A new bike parking location is open at Pittsburgh's Century Building, 130 7th St, between Penn Ave and Fort Duquesne Blvd. $100/year gets you access to two bright-green, locked shipping containers for secure bike parking. There are also bike racks under an awning provided free, covered bike racks.

The Bicycle Commuter Center is the brainchild of Bill Gatti from TREK Development Group, the company that developed the Century Building. They're trying to attract young people to live downtown, and to build foot traffic in the area.

They're not quite bike lockers, which are very cool, but this is the next-best. It's a small good thing.
