Accessible and secure bicycle parking encourages people to get where they need to go on their bicycle. A variety of parking options can be found in Columbus.
The City installs bike racks in public right-of-way upon request from local businesses. A business or property can request a bike rack via the 311 Call Center. Select "Bike Related Items" and then "Install bike racks" to submit the request.
Bike Parking Shelters
Bike shelters provide some protection from rain and hot sun making for a more enjoyable parking experience. Each shelter has been outfitted with either a green roof or bicycle information panels and a maintenance station. In addition, they increase awareness that Columbus supports the use of bicycles for transportation. Click here for a map of locations that have been installed to date.
Bike Parking Corrals
Bike corrals are on-street bike parking facilities where bike racks are installed on the pavement either in unused "dead zones" or where a motor vehicle parking space has been converted. This allows greater bike parking in areas where sidewalks are too narrow to accomodate enough bike racks for the demand. The first bike corral in Columbus was installed in June 2012 at the corner of Oak Street and 18th Avenue.
