As Austin Transportation continues to make progress on the City's All Ages and Abilities bicycle network and more Austin residents and visitors use bikes to get around, convenient and secure bike parking is increasingly important. Businesses, property owners and managers can help free up valuable sidewalk space, enhance the visibility and attractiveness of storefronts and provide an amenity to customers and tenants by providing secure bike parking.
Austin Transportation's Active Transportation and Street Design Division can help install free bike parking within public right of way and is taking applications for additional facilities throughout the city. Requests will be evaluated based upon available right of way space, bicycle parking demand and availability of nearby bicycle parking.
Residents may also request bike parking by obtaining support from the business or property owner adjacent to the public right of way requested for parking, and providing their contact information. Requested locations will be evaluated by Austin Transportation staff. If selected, the bicycle parking would be installed in the public right of way and at no cost to the business owner.
Applications can be completed and sent to Bicycle@AustinTexas.gov or mailed to the Austin Transportation Department at 901 S. MoPac Expressway, Building 5, Suite 300, Austin, TX 78746 for consideration.
