Downtown WPB Launching Bike Valet Pilot Project Starting March 4 for Florida Bike Month

Bike Valet provides VIP treatment for people reducing congestion and parking bottlenecks

WEST PALM BEACH, FL – One Parking, in partnership with WPBgo, are helping people who bike in and around Downtown West Palm Beach to have access to free, safe and secure bike parking through a Bike Valet pilot project at 360 Rosemary, located at 360 Rosemary Avenue. As part of the efforts to improve bike mobility during Florida Bike Month, bikers can drop off their bike to a valet attendant and have it securely stored for the duration of their visit to downtown. The valet bike storage is available from 7:30am to 10pm weekdays, with weekends and holidays excluded.

“We saw a need in our community where we can be of service to commuters traveling without a car. We have staff on hand at 360 Rosemary and a secure bike storage facility on site that has additional capacity,” said Kirsten Dolan, CEO of One Parking. “For Florida Bike Month, we wanted to make an extra effort to help people visit and work with ease in Downtown West Palm Beach.”

This two-month bike parking pilot project resulted from a public-private collaboration with the West Palm Beach Mobility Coalition, WPBgo. The aim of the pilot is to increase bike riding in Downtown West Palm Beach for workers and business customers. The results of the pilot will guide future efforts to accommodate all modes of travel into downtown.

“We think that people who take the opportunity to travel around without adding to congestion should be treated like VIPs,” said Jonathan Hopkins, Executive Director of WPBgo. “With assistance from One Parking, we are encouraging people who have ever thought about biking into Downtown West Palm Beach but needed someplace safe for their bike to try it out this Bike Month and beyond.”

The introduction of the bike valet service by WPBgo strengthens the commitment to enhancing accessibility and reducing congestion in Downtown West Palm Beach. As cyclists safely store their bikes, they can leisurely enjoy the scenic views, explore on foot, or conveniently utilize other transportation options like Circuit. Additionally, visitors, employees, and residents can pedal their way to the West Palm Beach GreenMarket on Saturday mornings, where they can valet bikes at 200 Clematis Street for free courtesy of the West Palm Beach Downtown Development Authority.
