Recording / Lunch Brake: What to Know About Short-Term Bike Parking

Short-term bike parking is an easy enough concept to understand. If someone needs to park their bike for less than two hours, it’s considered short-term. So why is the mark often missed? This session will help practitioners to plan bike parking for shoppers, diners, errand runners, visitors, students, sports fans, concertgoers, and much more. The session will include benefits of short-term parking, design strategies, and fundamental approaches to comprehensive short-term bike parking standards.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Explain the basic features of a highly functional bike rack
  2. Explain key considerations for site selection - matching the right rack to the right location to attract cyclists
  3. Identify common guidelines and obstacles of short-term parking
  4. Describe fundamental design features that creates a desirable short-term bike parking facility
