Bike Parking


Cycling to a transit station is a great way to commute. If you cycle to a station there are four ways to park your bike.

On this page

  • Bike Parkades: indoor facilities for customers with multiple bike racks inside.

  • Bike Lockers: a reserved locker for your bike.

  • Bike Racks: outdoor racks for locking your bike up.

  • Bike Valet: Store your bike safely while you enjoy events, shop locally, or explore the city.

  1. Lock your bike to an unoccupied designated rack space. Bikes weighing over 18 kg (40 lb) must use bottom racks.

  2. TransLink reserves the right to remove your bike if it is not locked to a designated rack at all times.

  3. Do not allow entry to any unauthorized persons. Ensure that the door completely closes behind you when entering/exiting the Bike Parkade.

  4. To ensure Bike Parkade racks are available when needed, long term bicycle storage is not permitted. Bikes left for longer than four days will be considered abandoned, tagged, and removed without notice.

  5. Storage of personal items and perishable or combustible materials is prohibited. All personal items will be removed.

    • Contact TransLink’s Lost Property Office at 604-953-3334 if your bike or personal property has been removed from a Bike Parkade.

  6. Only bikes, e-bikes, and cargo bikes are permitted to be stored inside Bike Parkades.

    • E-scooters, electric- and Vespa-style scooters, and gas-powered scooters are not permitted to be stored inside Bike Parkades.

  7. Users are responsible for any damage caused to the Bike Parkade itself or of any theft, loss, removal, or damage to items left in the facilities.

  8. Report any damage, security, or maintenance issues to the appropriate authorities listed below.

    • Contact Customer Information for Bike Parkade maintenance and damage at 604.953.3333

    • Contact Transit Police for stolen items by texting 87.77.77 (Note: standard carrier text messaging rates may apply)

  9. Neither TransLink nor its operating subsidiaries are responsible for theft, loss, removal, or damage to any items stored in a Bike Parkade.

Starting Jan. 26, 2023, we’re removing forgotten and abandoned bikes from Bike Parkades to maintain accessible and easy-to-use facilities for active cyclists.

Bike Parkades are meant for day-use only, not long-term storage. We ask Bike Parkade users to help fellow cyclists who need day-use Bike Parkades to seamlessly transfer between cycling and transit.

To alert bike owners of any pending removal, TransLink staff will attach a removal notification tag on bikes and other items two weeks before they’re removed and donated.

A bike owner who discovers a removal notification tag on their bike, and who wishes to continue using the Bike Parkades for permitted day-use only, may dispose of the removal notification tag and continue using the Bike Parkades on a daily basis provided that the bike is removed from the applicable Bike Parkade at the end of each day.

Removed bikes will be donated to the PEDAL Society to find a new home unless reported as stolen, in which case the Transit Police will contact the owner to arrange a pick-up.

Moving forward, clean outs will occur biannually and follow the same procedure.

Bike Lockers

Assigned lockers are perfect for commuters looking for a safe place to park their bike during the day.

Vancouver City Centre Bike Valet

Having trouble finding secure bike parking downtown? The Vancouver City Centre Bike Valet is back for another summer to help you safely store your bike or personal mobility device while you enjoy events, shop at local businesses, or explore the city!

This bike valet is being provided in partnership between Cadillac Fairview, TransLink, the City of Vancouver, the Downtown Vancouver Business Improvement Association, and delivered by BEST (Better Environmentally Sound Transportation).

Bike valets help reduce carbon emissions, free up space from cars downtown, and keep people active during the summer. Located inside the old Nordstrom building right outside Vancouver-City Centre SkyTrain Station, this free service will operate seven days a week from June 17 to Sept. 2, 2024, during the following times:

  • Monday to Friday: 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.
  • Weekend & Statutory Holidays: 12 p.m. to 5 p.m.
  • From 8 a.m. to 12 a.m. on the following dates for Summer Movie Nights:
    • July 4, 11, 18, 25
    • August 1, 8, 15

How the Bike Valet Works

Ride your bike to the Bike Valet inside the old Nordstrom building, and we’ll take care of the rest. Just like a coat-check, onsite staff will add a tag to your bike and provide you with a claim stub. Enjoy your day downtown, and bring back your stub when you want your bike returned. The Bike Valet is not limited to bicycles – we’ll accept other mobility devices such as cargo bikes and e-bikes!

Please note: The Vancouver-City Centre Bike Valet will have a capacity of 100 bikes/devices at a time. Bikes can only be left at the Bike Valet during operating hours and must be collected by the owner before closing. Bikes and other devices left overnight will be removed at the owner’s risk and unclaimed bikes and devices left after operating hours will be retained at the premises, but their security cannot be guaranteed. Retrieval can be arranged by contacting within 24 hours; however, a retrieval fee may be payable by patrons seeking the return of their unclaimed devices.

The valet will also offer sustainable transportation resources, including City of Vancouver pocket maps, TransLink’s Regional Cycling Maps, as well on-site registration for Project 529, a program designed to reduce bike theft and recover stolen bicycles.

Why Use the Bike Valet

The Bike Valet offers convenient and secure bicycle parking FREE to cyclists and personal mobility device users, at events throughout the year.

Secure: Staff will be onsite at all times to make sure your ride is safe in the enclosed valet area. 180,000+ people have successfully used our Bike Valet service to date!

Free: That’s right, FREE! We’re able to offer this service free of charge thanks to the help of our amazing sponsors. 

Convenient: Parking your bike has never been easier! No need to stress about finding space or a bike lock. You can even leave your helmet and panniers, as long as they're attached securely.

Friendly: Our awesome volunteers and staff will help make your experience as quick and easy as possible.
