Secure bike parking options 

One of the biggest deterrents to getting more people cycling is the fear that their bike will get stolen. 

Park your bike near your closest bus stop or station at a bike parkade or bring it with you on transit (100% of TransLink's fleet is accessible to bikes). Three different types of bike parking are available at SkyTrain stations, bus exchanges, and West Coast Express stations across Metro Vancouver.

1. Bike Lockers
Reserved or on-demand lockers for your bike. Available at most SkyTrain stations and some bus exchanges. Learn More.

2. Bike Racks

Standard outdoor racks for locking your bike up. Available at all SkyTrain stations and most bus exchanges. Learn More.

3. Bike Parkades

To make shopping by bike even easier, TransLink has built bike parkades so now you can park your bike and hop on the SkyTrain! Located at Main Street–Science World, King Edward, Commercial–Broadway, Joyce–Collingwood, Metrotown, Maple Meadows, Port Coquitlam, Bridgeport, Lafarge Lake-Douglas, Burquitlam and King George stations. Bike Parkades are indoor parking facilities where customers can lock up their bike for the day. Learn More.

4. The Bicycle Valet

The Bicycle Valet offers FREE bike parking at locations across Metro Vancouver. This year they will be in one of our Bike to Shop neighbourhoods: Granville Island!  Just like a coat-check, they’ll tag your bike and provide you with a claim stub to pick up your bike later on.
