Bike Parking Policies
Bikes should only be parked at designated bike parking areas. Bikes locked to handrails, railings, doors, ramps, stairways, bus stops, etc. will be removed.
The MBTA is not responsible for lost, stolen, or damaged bikes.
Cyclists are responsible for damage to MBTA property OR injury, loss, or damage to passengers or MBTA employees due to a cyclist’s negligence.
Motorized vehicles are not allowed at bike parking facilities.
Record your bike’s serial number to help identify it and return it to you if it’s stolen and recovered.
To report your bike stolen, call the Transit Police at 617-222-1212.
Bikes left for more than 2 weeks will be considered abandoned and will be removed from MBTA property.
If an MBTA employee suspects that a bike is abandoned, they will tag it. After 14 days, the bike will be removed and stored for 30 days at an MBTA facility. If the bike is still unclaimed, it will be donated to a local charity.
If your bike has been tagged but isn’t abandoned, simply remove the tag and continue to park normally.
Sweeps to remove abandoned bikes at high-traffic stations like Alewife and Davis will be advertised in advance at the bike parking area.
To report an abandoned bike or reclaim a bike that’s been removed, call Customer Support at 617-222-3200.
