Opportunity Description:

The Bicycle Valet provides professional, secure, coat-check style bicycle parking in and around Metro Vancouver. Since 2006, this social enterprise of Better Environmentally Sound Transportation (BEST), has parked 250,000 bikes. BEST is a non profit charity based in Vancouver. Will you be a part of this phenomenal program? 

Benefits to Volunteering with the Bicycle Valet:

  • There’s no regular time commitment necessary. Commitment is scary. We get it. Sign up online for a shift that works for you.
  • Free entrance to the event you’re volunteering at, including Vancouver Whitecaps and BC Lions games!
  • You can feel good taking concrete action supporting the environment and active transportation.  People love our service and are really appreciative!
  • Connect with the community, meet new people and have fun outdoors!
  • ALSO, we have really awesome, legendary volunteer parties!

How The Bicycle Valet works and what to expect:

Volunteers will be given instructions beforehand about where to meet and set up. People will ride their bikes, scooters, skateboards etc., to the Valet; volunteers and staff will take care of their bikes while they’re at the event – just like a coat-check. More on site training will be provided and staff are always present and friendly. 

Why The Bicycle Valet is Amazing

  • It increases accessibility and removes barriers to sustainable transportation by providing security for bikes (and accessories). More people will ride knowing they have a safe place to park, and more people will attend an event that is so easy to get to.
  • Creates peace-of-mind for attendees. Individuals worrying about the safety of their ride will be more inclined to leave an event early and will be less engaged.
  • Reduces congestion. Driving to an event can be frustrating, parking is expensive, and shuttles or public transportation overcrowded. 
  • It’s Environmentally friendly! No greenwashing here! Transportation is a significant piece of an event’s carbon footprint. The Bicycle Valet enables attendees to choose an efficient, zero-carbon trip method. 

This amazing program is powered by volunteers and we would love to have you join our team! Shifts are typically 4 hours long and require some physical labour. However, we support an inclusive and diverse environment and have flexible positions available for most.
