Bikestation Installs In Covina
Long Beach-based Bikestations, an angel-backed startup developing modules used for storing bicycles at train stations, bus stations, and elsewhere, said today that it has contracted for install of a center, at the Covina Metrolink station. Financial impact of the win was not disclosed. Bikestation is angel backed by the Tech Coast Angels. The firm said it is installing a new, 10x25 square foot "multi-use bicycle transit center" which will allow commuters to park up to 36 parking spaces and up to 80 users. Bikestation's centers provide such features as electronic security and key fob access to the stations. The firm received funding from the TCA in April.
