Cyclists will now have parking access at the Burquitlam, Lafarge Lake-Douglas, and Richmond Bridgeport stations. Including the three new stations, there are now ten bike parkades at transit stations across the TransLink network. The new parkades give cyclists parking access at Burquitlam, Lafarge Lake-Douglas, and Richmond Bridgeport stations. There are now a total of ten bike parkades at transit stations across the TransLink network.The other bike parkades are located at Main Street–Science World, Commercial–Broadway, Joyce–Collingwood, Metrotown, and King George, King Edward, Maple Meadows, and Port Coquitlam station
TransLink notes that the parkades provide an indoor facility for registered customers to store their bikes. They are all fully lit glass-walled facilities with video surveillance, a repair stand, and an air pump for bike tires. Each parkade can store up to 45 bikes at a time.
While bikes are more secure in the parkades than locking them outside, customers should still lock their bike within the parkade and ensure the door closes behind them.
Customers can find step-by-step registration instructions online or they can call Compass Customer Service at 604-398-2042 for more information. Once registered, customers can use their Compass Cards to tap into the parkades for a fee of $1 per day, capped at $8 per month.
