The City of Alameda Public Works Department says that the new lockers will be available on a first-come, first-served basis, at the cost of five cents per hour; the current lockers are individually assigned
The new lockers will use the BikeLink system, which is commonly found throughout the Bay area and at BART stations.
In Alameda, there are already similar lockers using the BikeLink system at the Harbor Bay Ferry Terminal, Civic Center Garage and at Alameda Landing.
To use the lockers, one must purchase a BikeLink card, either online, or through retail stores, such as Alameda Bicycle on Park Street.
The project is funded by the Water Emergency Transportation Authority and the Bay Area Air Quality Management District, Transportation Fund for Clean Air (TFCA).
