New bike cage is a corral for your cycles

BikeCageAs we return to campus, riding your bike just got a little better. Waterloo’s new bike cage has opened and students, staff, and faculty may now purchase spaces.

Located between EV3 and ML, the bike cage has fob access and security cameras, and has a covering to keep off the worst of the elements. The cage can park up to 62 standard sized bicycles, and is an important new tool to support cycling as a safe and sustainable way of travelling to campus.

Similar to the bike box program, users of the cage will purchase a permit and fob from Parking Services for $10 per month plus tax. Permits can be purchased on a monthly, termly, or yearly basis.

The project was initiated by students in 2018, and received funding from Parking Services, WESEF, the Faculty of Environment, VP Administration and Finance, Sustainability Action Fund, Faculty of Arts, and the Faculty Association, with design and construction support from Plant Operations.
