New Bikeshare station being installed in front of the Safeway on Royal Street between Wilkes and Gibbon. The crew thought it would be operational later today.

After a quick look on the CaBi website, it appears to be operational (2 bikes, 13 empty docks at the time I wrote this). That's a nice place for a CaBi station as it hits the Wilkes St bikeway, Royal St bike route, and the Wilkes St tunnel which connects to Union St and the MVT.

Edit: It's also now the most southern CaBi station in the system (barely beat out the Eisenhower Ave one).

I had wondered if it was the most southern of the stations. I had guessed the Eisenhower one was further south, but didn't bother to check it out. I am glad you did.

Here are the two bikes.
