The North Shore transit exchange has its bike lockers back - and the City of Kamloops can now proceed with an official launch of its commuter bike locker program.
The four lockers were originally installed in May, along with eight smaller ones at the Lansdowne bus exchange.
But crews discovered a textured paint finish on some exterior panels of the lockers, which would have prevented an adhesive mural from sticking. So, the City had to send the panels away to be stripped and repainted.
"We finally got them back," said City transit planner Erin Felker.
"And we got them numbered so we can actually rent them out."
One unit has already been rented and the City hopes to fill the remaining three.
The bicycle lockers are intended for commuters who ride to work and need a secure place to store their bikes. They are also intended for commuter cyclists who incorporate City transit into their commute.
The City is expected to announce this week a date for an official launch of the locker program.
The bike lockers rent for $10 a month, with a $50 refundable key deposit.
Both the Lansdowne and North Shore lockers are covered with murals depicting heritage themes for city's 200th anniversary of European settlement.
