Did You Know?

Only 24 percent of jobs in the region are accessible by transit in 90 minutes or less by a typical resident — and that number drops to 12 percent in the suburbs.

Tell us where you need secure bike parking

With the peak biking season in high gear, you may be looking for a secure place to lock your bike, particularly while at work.

Are you asking for secure parking? Are the building managers providing it? Please complete our brief survey. We'll use the results to advocate for more secure bike parking options!

Background
With accomplished bike thieves on the prowl, it's especially important to have secure parking for your commute (and a great lock or locks) when your bike is unattended for 8 hours or more.

Active Trans has had discussions with the Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA), the city of Chicago, and others about providing covered, secure bike parking at large office and residential buildings, particularly downtown, where the sheer number of people and bikes results in parking shortages.

BOMA is inclined to let the market determine whether buildings provide bike parking, and while more buildings are providing secure parking at the behest of current and prospective tenants, many are not.

Cities like San Francisco and New York adopted ordinances requiring certain office buildings to provide secure bike parking; the requirement there is waived if the building allows tenants to bring bikes into their offices.
