More and more school districts are adopting Safe Routes to School and other programs to promote walking and biking, with improving bike parking a key component when planning their programs. Providing convenient, safe, secure, bike parking for both students and teachers encourages bicycling to and from school, promoting healthier lifestyle benefits for riders, reducing traffic congestion and supporting clean air initiatives.
Focusing on well-design bike parking areas with high visibility for student convenience and bike security, safe placement away from vehicle traffic, and aesthetically pleasing bike parking furnishings to compliment building design and campus landscapes are essential.
