Red Sox offer bike valet to fans attending weekend games in August and September
By / MLB.com
BOSTON, MA - In partnership with the Massachusetts Bicycle Coalition (MassBike), the Red Sox will offer "Fenway Park Bike Valet," a bicycle valet parking service available to all Red Sox ticket holders. The new service allows those who bike to the ballpark to drop off their bike with a valet attendant, eliminating the need to find a bike rack and lock their bikes. The valet service is located outside Gate D on the corner of Yawkey Way and Van Ness Street. .
"We are pleased to partner with MassBike to offer this convenient and secure service to our fans," said Red Sox Executive Vice President of Business Operations Jonathan Gilula. "We encourage fans to bike to the ballpark during their next visit to Fenway Park and enjoy the health and environmental benefits of bicycling."
The bike valet service will open two hours prior to the game and close one hour after the game. It is free for ticketed fans. MassBike will oversee the operation of the service providing a safe, fenced off area for bikes to be stored, and claim checks for fans dropping off and retrieving their bikes.
"MassBike is thrilled to partner with the Boston Red Sox to encourage more people to ride bikes," says MassBike Executive Director David Watson. "Biking is the fastest way to get in and out of Fenway at game time, and once people see how fun and easy it is, they are more likely to make bicycling a regular transportation choice."
The bike valet service was successfully piloted at home games in July and is now being rolled out for the remaining Saturday and Sunday games in August and September when the Red Sox play the Houston Astros, Seattle Mariners, Toronto Blue Jays, and New York Yankees. The Red Sox join four other Major League teams currently provide bike valet service - the San Francisco Giants, Miami Marlines, Washington Nationals, and Chicago Cubs.
