Vancouver Requires Increased Bicycle Parking Spots
Securing your two-wheeled, gas-free ride is about to get a little easier, at least if you live or work in a new building.
New bicycle parking requirements passed by the city May 13 will increase the number of bicycle parking spaces new office and residential buildings are required to supply. They also give building owners flexibility in trading vehicle spaces for bike lockups.
The updates are the first changes to the city's bicycle parking requirements since 1995. They were preceded by a 2006 city review of bicycle lockups and interviews with managers and staff at 24 commercial and residential developments. Office buildings led the way with 74 per cent of the required secure, sheltered parking spaces provided at seven downtown office buildings surveyed in use, and 83 per cent of required spaces in use in six buildings outside of downtown.
