|Chapter 3||Bike 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 1||Expand the Chicago Department of Transportation's bike parking program.|
Install bike parking inside office buildings.
Providing indoor bike parking is one of the most effective ways to encourage people to bicycle to work. Less than 250 office buildings in Chicago currently provide indoor bike parking, however. Indoor bike parking can often be established with minimal effort and expense. Partner with the Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) and other appropriate organizations to publicize this service.
|Peformance Measure||Provide free consulting services to encourage the installation of indoor bike parking at 15-25 buildings per year, beginning in 2005.|
|Tracker Notes||Free consulting is provided, but to how many buildings' managers is unknown.|
