Bicycle Parking at Transit Stops/Stations

The availability of safe and convenient parking is critical for bicyclists riding transit. Bike parking can be as simple as an inverted U rack adjacent to a bus shelter (with enough overhang to protect the bicycle from the elements), to a sophisticated system of pre-rented lockers. The basic inverted U rack is the minimum requirement; otherwise bicyclists will lock their bikes to anything they find, including the pole the bus schedule is mounted on, making it inconvenient for passengers accessing transit on foot.
