Santa Monica College has completed a new 400-space south campus bike parking lot.

Santa Monica College has built a new $600,000 bike parking

lot with 400 spaces, bringing the campus total to 710 spaces.

The project was in response to a significant increase in

bicycle ridership by SMC students and employees

A grand opening ceremony is scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 28.

The facility, on three-quarters of an acre, is notably

secure, with bright lighting, security cameras and emergency phones – and it is

located across the street from the Campus Police office.

The lot also has secure racks for skateboards.

Funded by Measure AA, the 2008 Santa Monica-Malibu bond

measure, the new bike parking lot took six months to complete.
