As parking can be considered just one aspect of traffic demand management, the Winnipeg Parking Authority is working to improve the services we provide to cyclists within Winnipeg.
The Winnipeg Parking Authority currently operates a secure bike "corral" at the Millennium Library Parkade location. Access to the corral is through the use of a swipe card that allows access to the corral. While the corral is secure, any swipe card holder can access the space, so cyclists are encouraged to also bring their own bike lock. As the weight of a bike is not enough to activate the entry doors on the parkades, the Winnipeg Parking Authority has installed swipe card access at the bottom of the Donald entrance before the overhead door at the Donald exit on the side of the Pay in Lane machine.
The annual fee must be paid in full in advance and is non-refundable. Upon first application, a deposit will also be charged for the access card. This deposit will be refunded should the access card be returned by May 5th in the year of cancellation. Loss of the access card or failure to return after cancellation will result in forfeiture of the deposit.
Should you wish to apply for use of the Bike Corrals, please complete our application form.
With the transition to the multi-space paystations, the Winnipeg Parking Authority was left with a large number of posts stuck in the sidewalk that we removed old meters from. Many of these have been repurposed with the addition of a ring to the post to allow bikes to be secured.
