University Parkade Bike Station now open!
As of September 9, 2013, members of the university community are able to access the new University Parkade Bike Station.
Located on the ground level of the University Parkade, the Bike Station is a covered and enclosed parking facility for 100 bikes that is secured with a card-lock system. A public, self-serve bike repair centre, complete with tools and pumps will be adjacent to the parking area.
In addition to its proximity to University Centre and the tunnel system, the Bike Station is conveniently located near the Bike Dungeon, UMREG’s bike repair shop on the 100 level of Helen Glass.
To be granted card access to the Bike Station, students and staff can complete the registration form and arrange to have their U of M identification card programmed through Physical Plant.
A $10 administration fee will offset the costs of managing the Bike Station. Registration will be on a first-come, first-served basis. The card-lock system was activated Monday, September 9.
