In my civic generosity I may have misconstrued what a pass entitled you to:

"Passes are available for a small fee of $50.00 per year and guarantee you a parking spot at one of the parking facilites for the year."

Also, City employees apparently enjoy twice as many enclosed bike parking options as the general public.

"ENCLOSED bike parking - provided by both the City of Hamilton and private employers. In addition to the following information check out Smart Commute Hamilton.

for the PUBLIC:

The City of Hamilton, with the financial assistance of Metrolinx, provides ENCLOSED bike racks at the following locations. These facilities are for anyone to use, but note there is an annual fee. Click here for more details.
1) in the York Boulevard Parkade (32 York Blvd.) near the Vine St. access
2) at the Convention Centre, Hamilton Place and the Art Gallery of Hamilton in the underground parking garage on Summers Lane (80 Main St. W.)
3) at City Hall in the rear parking lot (71 Main St. W.) on the east side of the lower level garage.

The City is planning additional locations, so please give us your ideas.
