Bicycle Removal

 

While UBC aims to provide a wide variety of options for bicycle parking, some areas are not appropriate for locking your bike. Bicycles that are parked in places that restrict pedestrian movement, access to buildings, or critical infrastructure such as fire hydrants will be removed. Abandoned bikes are frequent at UBC as a result of the turnover of students. C+CP regularly removes abandoned bicycles to free up bike rack space for the campus community.

To Report a Bicycle to be Removed

If you see a bicycle locked in a place where it must be immediately removed or there are abandoned bicycles taking up valuable bike rack space, please contact Building Operations at 604-822-2173 or email servicecentre.buildingops@ubc.ca.

Alternatively, UBC faculty and staff with appropriate access can submit a service request

Claiming Removed Bicycles

No Parking Sign

If your bicycle has been removed, please contact UBC Building Operations at 604-822-2173. Please bring a photo or description of your bike, as well as ID when you pick up your bicycle.

Abandoned bicycles will be tagged for 3 days prior to removal to give owners a chance to remove the tag and claim the bike. Once bikes are removed, Building Operations will store the bikes for 30 days. If they are not claimed in that time, bicycles are usually sent to the Bike Kitchen for refurbishing and may be sold back to campus community members.
