Høvik School gets smart bicycle lockers for the employees

An infection prevention measure for safe travel, says Ingebjørg Tofte in Lier Municipalities.

An effective infection control measure

Right now, safe bicycle parking for the employees at Høvik School is a very effective infection control measure for safe travel. The bicycle is also the simplest and most environmentally friendly means of transport for many of the employees. At Høvik School near Lierstranda, the roughly 120 employees have access to ten smart bicycle lockers. Actually, they would like to have twenty.

-I think it is a good initiative. Very good to be able to park the bike safely inside. At the same time, it is good that it is reserved for employees so that you can count on free parking for those who work here, says Are Sofienlund - employee at Høvik Skole.

Are has worked at the school since 2018. With confidence bicycle parking on site - reserved for employees, it is easier to choose a bicycle to work. Are gets access to the bike locker from the app Bikely. Here he can also hang up his helmet, rucksack and other equipment.

Investment in safe bicycle parking

Previously it stood the employees' bikes parked together with the students' bikes. The staff at the school have experienced that others have tampered with the bicycles and they have had things damaged on the bicycles during the school day. With bicycle lockers deployed by Lier Municipality with dedicated access for employees, the employees have one less worry.

Lier Municipality has already deployed twenty smart bicycle lockers in Lierbyen. They are publicly available and free to use. What distinguishes the ten bicycle lockers at Høvik Skole from the others is that they are only accessible to the employees at Høvik Skole.

- With several locations for safe bicycle parking, the municipality is still better equipped to offer residents a safe return after a long period of closure, says climate advisor Ingebjørg Tofte in Lier municipality.

In the Bikely app you get a full overview of all available bike lockers in the municipality. Here you can book and manage your bike locker before you travel.
