This summer we're making it easy to get to and from in Vancouver! We've partnered with BEST and TransLink to provide a convenient and reliable transportation option during the city's most popular events and festivals. BEST will be designating space in their Bike Valet to accommodate Mobi by Shaw Go so you never need to stress about parking.
Whether you use bike share for your entire trip or as an extension of existing transit services we encourage you to build us into your commuter route! Leave your personal bike or car at home and let's take the stress of parking off your shoulders.
How the Bike Valet works.It’s simple! Ride your Mobi by Shaw Go bike to the Valet at one of the events listed below, and we’ll take care of the rest - like ending your ride. When you’re ready to leave, let the Valet know you’d like to take a Mobi by Shaw Go bike and we’ll roll one around for you. If no bikes are available at the Valet you can always grab a bike from a nearby station. Just use the Mobi by Shaw Go app or visit our website to find the nearest station.
What to look for.Keep your eye out for BEST's green tent and flags with the words Bike Valet and a blue Mobi by Shaw Go banner. The large corral of bikes will be hard to miss. If you can't locate the Bike Valet ask one of the event staff to point you in the right direction.
Events we’ll be at.End your Mobi by Shaw Go ride with the Bike Valet at the below events. Exact locations of The Bike Valet will be annouced on our social media so be sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
