Answers to the most frequently asked questions about the Bikezone
How long can I leave my bike in the Bikezone?
To allow other users to have a space in the Bikezone, and to ensure its maintenance, we ask that you remove your bike at the end of the day. Bikes left for more than 48 consecutive hours in the Bikezone risk being removed by our personnel.
I have access to the Bikezone. Can I let a friend leave their bike at the same time as me or in my place?
No. Only people who are registered and hold an access key can use the Bikezone. All other people must use an outdoor rack. To maintain security at the Bikezone, do not allow people without an access key to enter the Bikezone when you are coming or going.
What do I do if I have difficulty accessing the Bikezone (door won’t open, loss of OPUS card, or any other reason)?

Do I have to register for the Bikezone every year?
Your access to the Bikezone is valid for the same period as your OPUS card. When your OPUS card expires, you must re-register for the Bikezone by filling out the registration form.
For Longueuil terminal Bikezone users only: You do not have to re-register when your OPUS card expires. Upon renewing your card, exo will re-activate your access to the Bikezone before sending out your new OPUS card.
What do I do if there are no available racks in the Bikezone when I arrive?
The first-come, first-served principle applies. If no bike rack is available in the Bikezone, you must lock your bike on an outdoor rack.
