Free Secure Bike Parking at Waterfront Park
How does it work? It's like a coat check for your bike. Runners, volunteers, and spectators can drop off their bike (or stroller, scooter, trailer, etc.) at one of the Secure Bike Parking locations to make bicycling convenient, reduce traffic congestion and vehicle emissions. Trained staff and volunteers will watch your bicycle so you can enjoy the YAM Scram and marathon. Avoid the fuss...and leave your bike with us!

Did Your Car Get Towed?
Bummer! Vehicles are usually towed because they were in violation of the City Ordinances, or were towed from a privately owned lot, at the request of a property manager or owner. In either case, the company that towed the vehicle is required to contact the Burlington Police Department communications center and report the vehicle's registration, make, date and location from where it was towed. During regular business hours, you may call (802) 540-2380; after hours please contact (802) 658-2700.
