FAQs

How can I check out the Downtown Bicycle Station? You are welcome to try out the Downtown Bicycle Station to find out if it works for you. Contact carol@trailnet.org and request a free one-day pass. Bring a valid photo ID and register at Urban Shark during their normal business hours. Plan ahead for your bike commute as you will need a few moments to fill out paperwork and sign a waiver before you can use the Downtown Bicycle Station. NOTE: If you want to try out the station earlier than Urban Shark’s regular hours, contact Trailnet for alternate arrangements.

Do I bring my own lock? Yes. Locks are not provided for lockers or bike racks. If you forget your locks, you may rent them from Urban Shark.

What type of security should I expect? There is a 24-hour security camera at the facility. Only members have access through their key fob.

How much does it cost to replace a key fob? The cost to replace a lost key fob is $10.

How long can I leave my bike at the Downtown Bicycle Station? The Downtown Bicycle Station is not a storage facility for bicycles; it is secure bike parking for bike commuters.  We do understand that you cannot always complete your commute due to weather, time, distance, etc. Therefore, you can leave your bike parked in the Downtown Bicycle Station for up to three days. If you need to leave your bike for longer than three days, contact Urban Shark at 314.881.0322.

Can my personal items be left in a locker overnight? No, personal items may not be stored in a locker for more than one day.

What if I want to end my membership? If you want to end your monthly membership, please contact carol@trailnet.org. Please provide 15 days notice. Your yearly membership is a one-year contract; therefore you can only end an annual membership after your contract is complete.

I forgot to pay for my monthly membership. How soon until my key fob is deactivated? If you do not pay for your monthly membership, you will have five days before your key fob is deactivated. Trailnet will give you an email warning and a phone call before deactivation occurs. For convenience, you may request enrollment in an automatic monthly payment program to have the monthly payment deducted from your checking account.

I want to renew my yearly membership; do I have to pay the $20 application fee again? If you are renewing your yearly membership, you do not have to pay another $20 application fee. If you end your month-to-month membership or yearly membership and then decide to rejoin, you will have to pay the application fee.

Who does this project belong to? The Downtown Bicycle Station is an initiative of the City of St. Louis, Missouri, done in collaboration with key partners and supporters. The project is funded in part by funds allocated by the US Department of Energy through the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant Program under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. With these funds, the Downtown St. Louis Community Improvement District (CID) has the initial contract to manage the Downtown Bicycle Station. The CID has contracted with Trailnet for marketing and membership. The project would not have been possible without several additional generous contributions.
