Park Your Bike In My
Space for bikes: a resource
for installing indoor Bicycle Parking" is hot off the presses. The
booklet was produced by T.A. and funded by the New York Metropolitan
Transportation Committee (NYMTC). It targets building owners and managers who
are interested in providing indoor bicycle parking, and can be used as a tool
for tenants who want to show their landlords the benefits of bicycle parking.
The booklet explains why
buildings should have bicycle parking and how to install it. It also describes
how indoor bicycle parking:

for building owners and managers to satisfy their tenants.

or work in a building because the environment and tenants' health are
- Requires minimal space. An
area of 14 feet by 6 feet can store 10-12 bicycles.

buildings throughout NYC. We list a dozen examples with descriptions of
the parking and building contacts.
- Can be provided in many
forms including as a bike area or room, access to tenants' space, in the
parking garage, as well as outside with bike lockers or locked fenced-in
- Follows NYC Rules and
Regulations without creating fire hazards or liability concerns.
