We advise all cyclists to lock up their bikes properly. In an effort to provide for those who would prefer a more secure bicycle parking option, we have installed secure rental lockers in the downtown core and Pandosy neighbourhood.
How to rent
For only $12 per month, you can secure a locker – far cheaper than any vehicle parking pass. The parking office will provide you with a dedicated key.
For more information, call 250-862-8585.

In fall 2016, Kelowna RCMP partnered with a community-minded online service called 529 Garage.
529 Garage is a free online mobile application registration system which will allow the Kelowna RCMP and bicycle enthusiasts to join forces through improved education, prevention and communication to combat bicycle theft in our community. Results have shown that the 529 Garage app has the potential to effectively reduce the number of bike thefts and increase the number of recovered bikes that police can then return to their rightful owners.
