The Boston Red Sox and MassBike join together to present Fenway Park Bike Valet, a free bicycle valet parking service for ticket holders. The service will be piloted at home games on July 19th and 20th with an eye towards expanding the service to more games in the future. Up to 200 people per game are anticipated to use the bike parking service.
Fenway Park will join a handful of major league teams currently provide bike valet service, including the San Francisco Giants, Washington Nationals and Chicago Cubs.
“We’re excited to team up with MassBike to offer this convenient and secure service to our fans,” said Christopher Knight, Manager of Facilities Services & Planning. “We encourage fans to ‘Bike to the Ballpark’ during their next visit to Fenway Park and enjoy the health and environmental benefits of bicycling.”
MassBike will oversee operations for the valet service. They have extensive experience providing bike valet at large events including serving Earthfest which sees 100,000 attendees. MassBike’s system utilizes best-practices from across the country and includes secure parking in a fenced-off area, bike-specific racks, and claim checks to provide a smooth and efficient experience for people to drop off and retrieve 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 will be located outside Gate D on the corner of Yawkey Way and Van Ness Street. The service will open two hours prior to game time and close one hour after the game ends. Bike valet parking is free of charge for ticket holders.

Bike valet will be managed by MassBike staff with help from volunteers. If you are interested in volunteering for either day, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
