City Centre Cycle Lockers
Wolverhampton Railway Station
For short stay parking (exposed) cycle parking stands area available on the main station car park forecourt under the watchful eye of the British Transport Police. Or wheel your bike through the station concourse and turn right on platform 1 towards platform 5 (for local trains) where you will find more stands undercover from the elements and visible by CCTV. For those wishing to leave their cycles for lengthier periods why not hire a secure cycle locker located at ground level of the multi-storey car park? Six lockers are available for hire on a 3 monthly basis for £10 and a returnable deposit of £5 for the key. Simply go to the ticket office window with two forms of ID (one with your photograph and one with your address) where you will be asked to fill out a hire agreement and pick up your key.
