Long-Term Bike Parking
Long-term bike parking is designed for employees, residents, public transit users, and others that need to park their bike for several hours or more. Long-term bike parking is focused on security and weather protection. Common examples of long-term bike parking are bike lockers at a transit hub and a bike room in a residential complex.
Long-Term Bike Parking Guidelines
- Emphasizes physical security above public visibility, so close location to the destination may not be as important.
- Options for access control include user-supplied locks, keys, smart cards, or bike locker digital access.
- Signage may be needed for first-time users.
- Long-term bike parking is also known as Class I bike parking (or Class 1, or Class One).
