You can access the bike shelters with your SmartRider. Please note using them is at your own risk.
If you register your SmartRider for the bike shelters, you may choose up to two shelter locations and have 24-hour access.
Other bicycle parking areas such as u-rails and bicycle lockers will still be available at stations.

If you lose your SmartRider
If you lose your SmartRider, you’ll need help from one of our staff members. You'll need to show an acceptable form of photo ID and be able to unlock your own bike. For security reasons, we will record your personal details and bike details.
You wouldn’t leave your car unlocked in the car park, so make sure you treat your bike the same way. A good bike lock is essential to deter thieves, even if you’re using our bike shelters.
