Lost and Found

Vertex courteously offers a lost and found bin, in which the belongings left in the facility are stored for a period of one month. Afterwards, whatever is not claimed is donated.

Car / Bicycle Parking

Membership Additions

Additional members may be added to a family membership at no up-front cost, i.e. initiation fee.


Memberships may be put on hold for 1-6 months per year for a fee of $10.00 per month for the first person on a membership, and $5 per additional member (for family accounts). Vertex must receive written or email notice at least 15 days prior to the freeze period. Freezes must begin on the first of the month. Members will automatically return to regular monthly billing at the end of the designated freeze period. Annual members may freeze by paying $10 a month in advance for every month they wish to freeze; membership will be extended for that period.


Members may cancel their membership at anytime. It must be done before the first of the month to cancel billing. If not completed before the first of the month, membership is not refundable. It can be canceled either by:

  • Completing and returning a Termination Form to the front desk
  • Or sending an email to [email protected] with your full name and the month in which¬†you wish to stop paying dues

We would greatly appreciate if you can return your membership card in good condition so we can reuse it for another member and decrease our carbon footprint.

Repairs / Maintenance

Periodic maintenance, repairs, facility improvements or events may make it necessary for Vertex to restrict the use of the facility. Dues and fees will not be refunded in the event of such temporary restrictions.
