|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 2||Install bike parking with new development and construction.|
Continue replacing bike parking lost when parking meters are removed for "pay and display" parking.
Parking meters are often used for parking bicycles. With their removal, provide bike parking at appropriate locations.
|Peformance Measure||Determine where to provide replacement bike parking at least two months before removing parking meters. Install bike parking before or within two weeks of the removal of the parking meters.|
|Tracker Notes||The plan was launched before anyone would ever know that a parking meter lease would happen and 30,000+ parking meters would be removed. After that lease, no bike racks were installed to make up for the loss, and parking meters left to remain as bike parking were left in the lease useful locations (which was not the fault of CDOT).|
