Employees at Høvik are granted smart bike lockers

Safe travel during the pandemic

Currently, secure bike parking for employees at Høvik skole is an efficient measure for safe travel under the pandemic. The bicycle is also one of the easiest and most environmentally friendly vehicles for many employees. At Høvik primary school in Lierstranda, 120 employees have been granted ten smart bike lockers. However, they initially asked for twenty bike lockers.

I think it is a good measure. It is great to have the opportunity of parking the bicycle indoors. At the same time the bicycle parking is reserved for employees to ensure free parking for those who work here, says Are Sofienlund – an employee at Høvik primary school.

Are has worked at the school since 2018. With secure bicycle parking in place - reserved for employees, it has never been easier to cycle to work. Are has access to the bike lockers through the app Bikely. Here he can leave a helmet, backpack and other equipment.

Investment in secure bicycle parking

Before, the school employees' bicycles were parked together with the students' bicycles. Employees have experienced tampering and vandalism of their bicycles during the day. With bike lockers placed by Lier municipality with dedicated access for employees - the employees have one worry less.

Lier municipality has already placed twenty smart bike lockers in Lierbyen. They are publicly available and free of charge to use.The difference between the ten lockers at Høvik and the other lockers, is that they are only available for the employees.

- The municipality is better equipped to offer a safe return after a longer period of lockdown with several locations of secure bicycle parking, explains climate adviser Ingebjørg Tofte in Lier municipality.

In the Bikely app you get the complete overview of all available bike lockers in the municipality. You can book and administrate your bike locker before your travel.
