Bike Valet

Bike UNL is offering a free bike valet service during Jazz in June concerts. Individuals attending the concert series can leave bikes at the Bike UNL station by 13th and R streets. Contact information collected at drop off and photo identification will be required to retrieve bikes left at the valet station.

The bike valet service is available from 5 p.m. to one hour after each concert. Failure to collect a bike by one hour after the conclusion of the performer’s final song will result in a $35 handling and storage fee.

More information is available at UNL Today and Bike UNL.
