How it works:

The Basics

Purchase a BikeLink card online or at any staffed Bike Station. Then register at Your $20 Bike Link card is pre-loaded with $20 parking value. 

A one time ID verification is required to use the controlled-access bike stations.  Verify in advance for free or immediately for $5 at a BikeLink kiosk.

Always lock your bike with a stout u-lock. This is an unattended, shared-use facility.

Your bicycle must always be identified with your Bike Link ID Card Number. Use the sticker provided with your Bike Link card or a temporary hang tag.

Once inside, you have 10 minutes to park and exit.  Overstays will trigger an alarm and a remote security alert.

Park for up to 10 days at a time. Overtime Rates apply. Bikes left longer may be considered abandoned.
