Secure bike lockers have been installed at key locations in each of Essex County’s seven local municipalities.

The lockers were funded through the County Wide Active Transportation System’s Municipal Partnership program, which sees the County and local municipalities share the costs for enhancements to trails and active transportation corridors.“

This partnership program benefits the residents of Essex County and it promotes both safe cycling and the increased use of bicycles instead of motor vehicles,” said Katherine Wilson, Active Transportation Coordinator for the County of Essex. “These lockers will provide cyclists a secure place to store their bicycles and they are being placed in high-traffic locations like municipal arenas and recreation centres.”

Users can access the lockers for free using the Movatic smartphone App, which enables individual users to open and close a locker using Bluetooth technology.

The App is very easy to use and will enable the CWATS team to track usage of the lockers to determine how often they are used and when they are accessed and for how long.

One locker with compartments for two bicycles is being installed at each of the following locations:

  • Amherstburg: Libro Centre
  • Essex: Essex Recreation Complex
  • Kingsville: Kingsville Arena
  • LaSalle: Vollmer Complex
  • Lakeshore:Belle River Marina
  • Leamington: Nature Fresh Farms Recreation Centre
  • Tecumseh: Tecumseh Arena
