HUB Cycling recently hosted their 4th Annual Bike Awards – a celebration of organizations, individuals, schools and municipalities who have led the way in increasing biking across Metro Vancouver.
This year, we took home more than just our bikes! TransLink was awarded Best Public Bike Parking Facilities for our King George Station and Main Street Station Secure Bike Parkades!
TransLink is a big supporter of multi-modal transportation (did you know that our entire bus fleet is equipped with bus bike racks?) and participate annually in Bike to Work Week.
All of our secure bike parkades are Compass enabled, and easy to use! Check Jess out in action!
Thanks to HUB Cycling for this awesome award!

Compass is now integrated into our bike parkades!
This means you can easily use one card for transit travel and storing your bike with your Stored Value.
Using your Compass Card at the bike parkades is as easy as 1, 2, 3!
#1: Get a Compass Card.
#2: Register your card at compasscard.ca.
#3: Enroll in the Bike Parkade program.
Use of the parkades only costs $1 per day, up to $8 per month!
Here are some tips for using the bike parkade:
- Make sure to remove your helmet and any or panniers from your bike
- Lock your bike to the rack with a sturdy lock
- Keep your Compass Card with a positive balance to use the parkades
