Rather than using a pre-paid card to store your bike in eLockers at stations, riders can now use an app.
The on-demand, secure eLockers are available at 40 BART stations, including Richmond Station, which offers 32 eLockers.
After downloading the app, riders create an account. Then when they ride up to an available eLocker, they can launch the app, follow on-screen instructions to put time on the meter and open the door to park their bike inside.
The BikeLink card balance and app account balance are not connected, according to BART.
