I bring my bike inside with me but I would use a locker at a buck a day and I think the city should pay out of car parking meter and ticket money. I would need a reservation system or some guarantee that a locker would be available. I leave early enough now so that I can leisurely change a flat and get to work in plenty of time. If I had to leave even earlier so I would have time to find another locker in another garage further away, I think I would diquise my bike as a beater and weigh myself down with locks. The problem would be, How do you prevent some one from reserving a month or week at a time Only hoping that they would use it? A waiting list and unused lockers needs to be prevented somehow.
