A brand new bike cage at Kangaroo Flat Railway Station has now been installed providing more options for people to get to the station and catch the train.

“It’s great to see bike cages being installed in regional stations like Kangaroo Flat.” Minister for Public Transport Jacinta Allan said.

“The cage provides 26 secure bike spaces, giving local passengers more options for how they get to the station.”

Minister for Public Transport Jacinta Allan announced the new parkiteer cage will have room for 26 bikes.

Parkiteer bike cage allows passengers to park and securely store their bikes at railway stations and can be opened with an access card.

More than 13,000 commuters are now taking advantage of bike lockers popularity of bike cages at 95 locations across Victoria.

Installation of the new bike cage follows last week’s announcement that 50 new car parks will be built at Kangaroo Flat railway station, with car park upgrades at Castlemaine, Woodend, Clarkefield and Macedon.

“It’s part of our ongoing investment in better transport for people in Kangaroo Flat with more trains, more often, every single day.” Ms. Allan said.

Earlier this year the Andrews Government introduced 10 extra services on the Bendigo line as part of a new V/Line timetable, which added 80 new regional services across Victoria.

These new services built on the extra peak services delivered last year, and the start of Bendigo Metro which changed the timetable so all weekday trains between Bendigo and Melbourne now stop at Kangaroo Flat.

Bicycle Network will manage the bike cage on behalf of PTV. The cage is free to use following payment of a $50 fully refundable bond.
