May 2018 was a record month for TransLink’s Bike Parkades, recording nearly 2,600 entries across the system! There were nearly 700 entries into the bike parkade during Bike to Work Week alone. Needless to say, cycling is becoming an increasingly popular option for commuters.
That’s why we’re excited to open a new Bike Parkade at King Edward Station so more people can #BiketoTransit! This is the first parkade to open on the Canada Line and fourth across the system.
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.
Each day, 107,000 trips are made each day by cycling in Metro Vancouver and it’s our job to help support and grow the number of bike trips!
#BiketoTransit is a partnership between TransLink, HUB Cycling, Mobi by Shaw Go, Better Environmentally Sound Transportation (BEST), Project 529, Modacity and Cowlines that strives to make it easier for commuters to integrate cycling into their travels.
Contest Alert! ⚠️ Our friends at HUB Cycling and Mobi by Shaw Go are celebrating multimodal transportation through a #BiketoTransit photo contest! Submit a photo of you combining cycling and transit to enter to win a prize pack that includes a one-zone Monthly Pass from TransLink and a Mobi by Shaw Go 365-Day Plus Pass.
Aside from Bike Parkades, our fleet is fully accessible to bikes. Never taken a bike onto the bus before? You can practice at Main Street–Science World Station and at the City of North Vancouver’s City Hall Plaza. Visit translink.ca/bikesontransit to learn more!
We’ve also partnered with Hub Cycling and Mobi by Shaw Go. Mobi’s offering a free Day Pass so you can cycle for part of your commute. Use the promo code biketotransit to redeem a free 24-hour pass at and get cycling.
Later this year, two more Bike Parkades will open at Metrotown and Commercial–Broadway stations, with seven additional parkades planned for installation over the next few years!
