Strategy AC1.10: Increase the amount of secure bicycle parking in commercial centers.

Strategy Description

Strategies to increase the amount of secure bicycle parking in commercial centers include conducting a survey to include cycle counts and the availability and occupancy rates of existing on- and off-street bike parking facilities; requiring a standard number of bike parking spaces in new developments; and providing incentives, such as tax breaks, to landowners that provide ample bike facilities.

Additional Information / Case Studies
