|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.|
Encourage installation of bike parking at retail locations.
Shopping centers and other retail outlets often have insufficient bike parking. Whatever bike parking is provided is often inconveniently located and/or poorly designed, further discouraging use. Providing bike parking is an inexpensive way to encourage people to shop by bike, increasing overall parking capacity at minimal cost.
|Peformance Measure||Encourage 10 existing shopping centers to provide adequate bike parking by 2007, and an additional 25-50 existing shopping centers by 2010.|
