Bike sharing launches at YVR

We’re excited to announce that YVR has joined U-Bicycle’s growing network of shareable bikes in Richmond. Earlier this month, U-Bicycle introduced a parking zone at Templeton Station, located steps away from the Canada Line and a short walk from the McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Centre.

Since launching their network in Richmond last year, U-Bicycle now has 150 bikes and 40 parking zones which extend as far south as Steveston. Grabbing a U-Bicycle bike is easy! All you need to do is search for a bike via the U-Bicycle mobile app and unlock it by scanning the unique QR code on the bike. Each bike is equipped with a helmet to ensure safe cycling.

Welcoming U-Bicycle to YVR aligns with our goal of supporting sustainable modes of transportation to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions on Sea Island. We’re hopeful access to bike sharing on Sea Island will complement our existing 29 km cycling network by further encouraging employees, passengers, and visitors to get around on a bike.
