Though this is common site in the Netherlands,Germany ,Sweden, Denmark and many other cities around the world, with bike parking facilities at bus stops and at major train stations.
Well this is a good news story for the TAMS transport department with the unveiling of the Bike park & ride sites. I have been a big critic of car park and rides, as they are expensive (up to $10 000 per car park space),they take up too much room and do nothing for active transport.

So to Transport for Canberra's New Bike > Park > Ride. I posted the need for better infrastructure along bus stops before and the department has been listening to the Community and have completed some of the new stops with some more to come.

As winter approaches this will test some of the fair weather riders but given the spread of the city this is definitely a good policy. What is needed is now some decent lighting along the cycle paths to and from these stops to make them more safe.
