MAYOR ERIC JACKSON, NJ TRANSIT AND GREATER MERCER TMA HIGHLIGHT NEW BIKE TOOL STATION
Release Date: April 29, 2015

MAYOR ERIC JACKSON, NJ TRANSIT AND GREATER MERCER TMA

HIGHLIGHT NEW BIKE TOOL STATION AT TRENTON TRANSIT CENTER

 

Trenton, N.J. — Fixing your bike in Trenton just got a little easier thanks to a new bike tool station purchased by Greater Mercer Transportation Management Association (GMTMA) and installed by NJ Transit at the Trenton Transit Center on South Clinton Avenue earlier this month.

 

Conveniently located next to the bike racks near the front entrance of the Trenton Transit Center, the tool station enables cyclists to easily fill their tires and make quick fixes to their bikes, such as changing a flat tire or adjusting the brakes.

 

"The Jackson administration is working to make the city more bike-friendly with its complete streets policy, bike lanes and citywide bicycle and pedestrian plan," said Cheryl Kastrenakes, Executive Director of Greater Mercer TMA. "We wanted to show our support for these public policy actions and encourage more people to choose biking as a way to access the train."

 

Kastrenakes added that bicycling infrastructure makes it easier for people to choose two wheels rather than four as a way to get around, and that Mayor Eric Jackson understands and supports this goal.

 

“I applaud the work of Greater Mercer TMA, and I am delighted that it was able to use its resources to help make the tool station a reality," said Mayor Jackson.

 

Greater Mercer TMA is a nonprofit transportation management association dedicated to promoting environmentally friendly transportation options. To learn more, visit gmtma.org.
