Secure Bike Parking
UC Berkeley’s Parking & Transportation department has installed three secure and covered bicycle parking facilities on campus, for use by UC affiliates.This program is offered free of charge on a first come, first served basis.
Secure Bicycle Parking provides added security for your bicycle with:
- Access with a cal1 card.
- Parking enforcement patrols during business hours.
- Observation by parking attendants in facilities within parking lots on weekdays.
- Three covered facilities located in campus parking areas you can view on this map(link is external):
- Bancroft Parking Structure(link is external)
- Boalt Lot(link is external)
- Recreational Sports Facility Garage(link is external)
Each facility contains bicycle racks. Bicycles must be locked to a rack using a high-quality lock. Secure Bicycle parking facilities are locked and accessible only via a Cal1 Card.
Effective 8-1-2019, codes are no longer issued for the bike cages. Access to the bike cages is offered 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with Cal1 Card access. If you were assigned a code prior to 8-1-2019, you may continue to use your code to access the cages.
To apply, simply fill out the application located here(link is external). Upon approval of your application, you will receive a confirmation email to use the bike cages. Please note that it may take up to five business days to process and update to all cages.
