Bike Racks for Business
We receive many requests about bike parking — how it is determined when racks are installed in front of businesses, and what areas qualify as 'busy bike zones', meriting this investment by a municipality.
In the City of Vancouver, bike racks are available to businesses that request them, and the City fully funds racks on City property in commercial areas.
Submit a request online for new bike parking or call 3-1-1.
There are main criteria considered when determining whether a rack will be supplied:
- is there enough space to install a bicycle rack and does the street use allow it (i.e. we do not put bicycle racks in bus zones)
- is the location on city property
- is the request in a business area which will serve the general public
