Officials Celebrate New Bike Tool Station in Hamilton

Posted on Categories Lifestyle, Member News, Transportation

Fixing your bike in Hamilton just got little easier thanks to a new bike tool station purchased by Greater Mercer Transportation Management Association (GMTMA) and recently installed by NJ Transit at the Hamilton Rail Station.

Conveniently located at the station near the bike lockers and racks, 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.

“Hamilton Township adopted a Complete Streets policy in recent years, which encourages bike and pedestrian friendly infrastructure be included in road design,” said Cheryl Kastrenakes, Executive Director of GMTMA. “We wanted to show our support for Hamilton’s policy and encourage more people to choose biking as a way to access the train.”

Kastrenakes added that the presence of bicycling infrastructure makes it easier for people to choose biking as a way to get around.

“We are delighted that Greater Mercer TMA was able to use its resources for the tool station and are looking forward to working together to make Hamilton a better biking community,” said Mayor Kelly Yaede.

Greater Mercer TMA is a non-profit, public-private partnership dedicated to reducing traffic and improving mobility in and around Mercer and Ocean counties. GMTMA is committed to providing transportation choices that are good for commuters, business, community, and the environment.
