Description

Racks are full, greatly discouraging local residents from cycling to the station. This causes an increase in traffic and is not very equitable, considering that the state subsidizes parking garage construction to the tune of $50,000 to $100,000 per space.

Also, for commuters, there needs to be a major increase in the amount of storage that is secure and sheltered.

When will the DOT attend to this problem?
