Monday means fighting morning traffic. Now, one developer is hoping to help ease the commute, by providing bikes to apartment residents. 

"As far as we know this is the first in town at least at this scale," said Justin Wilson, spokesperson for Broadstone 8South.

Dozens of tangerine bikes built by Brooklyn Bicycle Company for the residents of Broadstone  8South. 

The bikes were made with storage boxes for easy errands. There's a designated spot for bike repair, tools and pumps - even a bike wash station in the shop.

Residents can also store their own bike, utilizing one of the 70-spots. 

Developers said they hope the convenance of the bikes and the year-round storage will encourage residents to ditch their cars.
