Hello Vélo: City of Ottawa Parking Services Program

Hello Vélo – a new initiative by Parking Services – incentivizes private organizations (such as local businesses) by subsidizing 50 per cent of the cost when purchasing a bike rack from the City’s inventory. 

Interested in getting a new bike rack for your organization? Email hello.velo@ottawa.ca and Parking Services will help you place your order. Please note that they only accept payments via e-transfer and that your organization will be responsible for pick-up and installation.
