18 November 2016 – Victoria’s Minister for Public Transport, Jacinta Allan, and Mayor of the City of Greater Bendigo, Margaret O’Rourke, launched our first automated bike parking and charging station in Bendigo. The principal aims of the system is to reduce emissions and traffic congestion, and improve health through active transport.

When fully installed, the City of Greater Bendigo’s station will comprise 20 CyclePorts to lock, charge and share their staff bike fleet, including electric bikes. Our smart system enables staff to reserve bikes online, tap their RFID card to instantly release bikes, and dock and walk away when finished. It will seed a citywide, automated bike share network which could involve multiple Bendigo organisations and destinations.
