BARCLAYS CENTER PARTNERS WITH TRANSPORTATION ALTERNATIVES TO PROVIDE FREE BIKE VALET SERVICE FOR CONTEMPORARY COLOR

Jun 26, 2015

**BIKE PARKING SPOTS LOCATED ON DEAN STREET BETWEEN FLATBUSH and 6th AVENUES**

BROOKLYN (June 24, 2015) – Following the successful bike valet service offered at The National and Arcade Fire concerts, Barclays Center will partner with Transportation Alternatives again to provide free bike valet for two nights of Contemporary Color at the arena on June 27 and 28 at 7:30 p.m. A performance event created by music icon David Byrne, Contemporary Color features 10 color guard teams alongside an extraordinary array of musical talent performing live. The show is presented by BAM and Barclays Center.

“Given that one of New York City's most prominent bicyclists is curating this event, there are sure to be lots of people arriving at Barclays Center on two wheels,” said Paul Steely White, Executive Director of Transportation Alternatives. “But there's no need to worry about finding a place to lock up your ride. Bike Valet's got you covered. Our staff will watch your bike like it's their own.”

Starting at 6 p.m. the day of each show, riders can drop off their bikes in one of the parking spots located on Dean Street between Flatbush and 6th Avenues. Bikers will then be met by Transportation Alternative valets, who will provide a branded claim check for their bike and helmet. Locks are not necessary, as it is a secure and safe transportation choice.

Tickets to Contemporary Color are still available and can be purchased online via Ticketmaster by visiting www.barclayscenter.com, www.ticketmaster.com, bam.org, or by calling 800-745-3000. Tickets are also available at the American Express® Box Office at Barclays Center. For more information about the show, please visit www.contemporarycolor.com.

Transportation Alternatives’ Bike Valet is a must-have service for a growing number of events in Brooklyn and citywide. For more information about the program, visit: www.transalt.org.

Arena staff will work closely with the MTA to coordinate mass transit to and from the arena and with the NYPD and other City agencies to ensure safety and security procedures are strictly followed and enforced.
