Valet Parking

Bicycle Tasmania offers a Bike Valet Parking service, which can be purchased by the organisers of
festivals, events and cultural activities in greater Hobart.  This service is required because there is still a major shortage of safe, secure and convenient places for people to park their bikes.  We offer the service in order to both support our members and  promote cycling as active and sustainable transport.  Valet parking is provided close to the entrance to events, so riders get the benefit of quick and convenient access.

Bicycle valet parking has been steadily growing in popularity for the last ten years, contributing to the vibrancy of bicycle cultures in cities all over the world.   The bicycle valet parking service offered by the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition is so popular that in 1998 a law was passed that mandated monitored bicycle parking at all events with an anticipated number of participants greater than 2000.

Run by bike riders for bike riders, bike valet parking adds green value to any event, enhances the rider experience, rewards sustainable transport choices and encourages health through physical activity and community engagement.  We currently provide bike valet parking for:

·         Taste of Tasmania

·         MOFO

·         RTBG Spring Festival

·         Sustainable Living Festival

·         …why not add your event here?

If you’re planning an event, contact us via vpc@biketas.org.au to discuss your requirements.
