Bike pod at DART stations

DART has it’s next generation bicycle parking at all train stations throughout the rail network. Unlike it’s predecessor, you don’t have to call and reserve the pods, just simply roll up, lift the cover, and lock it up with your own lock. The pods are made of a lighter, more weather resistant material, unlike the former boxes that seemed to disintegrate before your eyes.
Post feedback if you’ve used one of the pods to park and ride. See this photo of one in use at the Tyler Vernon Station:

Also, in other DART news, all rail stations are now equipped to handle credit card transactions. Good news for riders who never seem to have cash!
