Provide and publicize attended bike parking at large events and festivals.

Strategy 3.4.1 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 4Provide bike parking at large events and sports facilities.

Strategy 1

Provide and publicize attended bike parking at large events and festivals.

Attended or "valet" parking for bicycles, especially if free, encourages people to bicycle to the event rather than drive, thereby reducing traffic congestion and demand for automobile parking. Encourage private sector sponsorship and community operation of this service.

Peformance MeasureProvide attended bike parking at Chicago's 10-25 largest events and festivals per year, beginning in 2006. Publicize in event/festival brochures and media releases.
Tracker NotesThere has been bike valet at many festivals, although I don't know if it was ever provided at 10 or more of the "largest events and festivals" each year. Its presence has usually been sufficiently publicized.
