Bike Parking Required for new Zoning Permits in Philadelphia

Philadelphia is becoming more bike friendly. A recent City Council bill, # 090190, " ... require bicycle parking for new zoning permits. ... legislation was developed by the Bicycle Coalition and the Nutter Administration ... prompted by a Bicycle Coalition report ... on Philadelphia's bike parking shortage ..."

" ... four page fact sheet ... download the Fact Sheet and give it your property manager to encourage him/her to install bike racks in office building."

" ... Philadelphia Parking Authority installed bike racks at three of its Center City garages. ... Academy of Sciences committed to installing racks ... Philadelphia's Division of Aviation committed to installing ... racks at PHL ... the Streets Department issued a "notice to proceed" for ... 1400 new inverted U racks to be installed throughout the city. ..."

Making it easier to safely park a bike will help reduce car trips, save energy, and reduce pollution in Philadelphia.
