Downtown bike valet

The downtown bike valet is being introduced as a two-month pilot with service available on Saturdays and Saturdays, noon to 6 p.m. until Sunday, September 3rd, 2023. The service will be offered free to riders downtown at the intersection of Bernard Avenue and Mill Street.

The City is partnering with the Kelowna Area Cycling Coalition (KACC) to deliver the pilot, with the City providing equipment and funding and KACC operating the site.

Use the bike valet service and you’ll have the chance to win one of two new bikes by completing a short online survey. Prize winners will be drawn on Tuesday, September 5.

We will assess the bike valet’s success following the pilot. User numbers, opinions shared through an online survey, impact on bike theft statistics and City Council’s considerations will inform decision-making following the pilot period. Bike Valet initiatives in Vancouver and Victoria were expanded due to their success, which is a potential for Kelowna moving forward.

Find more information in the news release announcing the pilot.

We have installed secure bicycle rental lockers in the downtown core and Pandosy neighbourhoods to provide secure bicycle parking options. You can secure a locker for $14 per month - far cheaper than any vehicle parking pass - by contacting Kelowna Parking at 250-862-8585 or
