Continue installing outdoor (short-term) bike racks.

Strategy 3.1.1 Details

Chapter 3Bike Parking: Providing convenient, secure places to park is an inexpensive and effective way to encourage bicycling. This chapter identifies five objectives designed to increase the availability of short-term (less than two hours) and long-term (e.g., indoor) bike parking throughout Chicago.
Objective 1Expand the Chicago Department of Transportation's bike parking program.

Strategy 1

Continue installing outdoor (short-term) bike racks.

Between 1993 and 2004, Chicago installed 10,000 bike racks on public property, more than any other city in the United States. The city should continue this popular program but at a slower pace, given the number of bike racks now available.

Peformance MeasureInstall between 400-500 bike racks per year, beginning in 2005.
Tracker NotesBike rack installation continues at this pace, sometimes exceeding it.
