In 2015, Bike Patrol hit the streets of downtown Vancouver as part of a four month trial.
Because it was such a success, Bike Patrol is back for a second season!
This year, Bike Patrol is stationed again in downtown Vancouver and will be attending some events in the Surrey Central area.
- From May to September, officers patrol in shifts between 11:00 a.m. and 9:30 p.m.
- A total of eight security personnel will be CAN-bike certified, which includes backup relief
- No fair-weather riders! Bike Patrol will run rain or shine.
While Bike Patrol is around to respond to emergencies, they do so much more!
They act as an important resource for transit operators, passengers and the public.
A more mobile security team will also give Transit Security the opportunity to go places where they are restricted in a car while reducing carbon emissions and vehicle costs.
On two wheels, they can work more closely with riders and employees alike at SeaBus, Waterfront Station and the 43 bus routes that travel through the downtown core.
Be on the lookout for Transit Security officers donning their bright yellow uniforms in downtown Vancouver!
