Exciting news for our multi-modal commuters—bikes are now allowed at Metrotown Station!
Recently, the rebuilt east stationhouse at Metrotown Station opened with four new escalators, further improving passenger flow and access at the station. With all three stationhouses now open (west opened in July 2017 and centre opened in March 2017), we have more capacity than ever before at the station!
As a reminder, customers with bikes will need to enter and exit through the centre stationhouse where elevators are available for use. The east and west stationhouses have escalators only and bikes are not permitted due to safety concerns. Please be mindful of the bicycle restrictions in place that affect when and how many bikes are allowed on SkyTrain during varying times of day.
This is just the beginning! Work is expected to be fully complete at Metrotown Station later this spring, including a new Bike Parkade!
Bike Parkades are secure facilities where customers who ride bikes to or from transit can lock their bike for the day. The parkade can be accessed with a registered Compass Card 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, for $1 per use (per day) to a maximum of $8 per calendar month.
