"At the ATA member meeting Rob Sadowsky(?) mentioned that they are working with the city on a second bike parking facility like the Millenium bike parking. Does anyone know where this would be located? As Anne said West Loop near both stations would…"
"It would be great to have a West Loop bike station for exactly this reason. Between people who keep bikes at Union and Ogilvie stations and those who work nearby, I'd expect there to be a large number of potential members.
