New Bike Lockers for Rent at Buttermilk Parking Lot

The City of Aspen Parks and Open Space Department has just installed 20 new bike lockers at the Buttermilk parking lot in an effort to help commuters who take the bus or drive up valley switch to bikes for the last few miles of their commute.  The bike locker program is a compliment to the City’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan, which in part aims to make expand bicycling opportunities in Aspen.

“We are so pleased to be offering these secure lockers for people who want to bike the last few miles in and out of Aspen,” said Brian Long, Trials Field Supervisor.  “Having easy access to a bicycle helps commuters avoid the congestion of getting into town while also knowing their gear is safely stored in a covered location at night and when they’re not using it.”

"The ideal customer for this is a commuter who would benefit from use of a bicycle during their day in Aspen, but has struggled to figure out storage or transport," Long added.

Twenty lockers are available through November 15 for a $25 rental fee from the Aspen Parking Department on a first come, first serve basis.  The lockers are all named after a Colorado 13ers in the Elk Range.  Each renter will be issued a key to a specific locker that is theirs for the season.  The 2019 rental period will be April 15 – November 15.

This bike locker program is designed to help reduce vehicle trips on Castle Creek Bridge and ease parking in downtown, aligning with the City’s transportation goals.
