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.

  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. Long term bicycle storage is not permitted. Bikes that have been left in a Parkade for more than four days will be considered abandoned and removed.

  5. Storage of personal possessions, perishable items, or hazardous or combustible materials in the Bike Parkade is prohibited.

  6. You are responsible for any damage to the Bike Parkade caused by you or your use.

  7. 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

  8. Neither TransLink nor its operating subsidiaries are responsible for theft, loss, removal, or damage to any items stored in the 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, TransLink staff will attach a tag on bikes and other items two weeks before they’re removed. Bike owners who discover a tag on their bike are encouraged to simply dispose of their tag and continue using day-use Bike Parkades as they normally would.

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 will help you safely store your bike while you enjoy events, shop at local businesses, or explore the city!

This new bike valet location is thanks to a partnership between Cadillac Fairview, TransLink, the City of Vancouver, the Downtown Vancouver Business Improvement Association, and 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 at TD Plaza right outside Vancouver City Centre SkyTrain Station, this free service will operate seven days a week from June 19 to Sept. 1, 2023, during the following times:

  • Monday to Friday: 7:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
  • Saturday & Sunday: 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.

Did you know that TransLink sponsors other bike valets throughout the region? Check out the list of events where this service will be available this summer!

How the Bike Valet Works

Ride your bike to the bike valet tent at Georgia St. and Granville St., 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. You can even leave your helmet or paniers on your bike, as long as they are securely attached. The bike valet is not limited to bicycles – we’ll accept other mobility devices such as cargo bikes and e-bikes!

Please note: 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 may be impounded with the Vancouver Police Department.

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.
