Bicycle and Micromobility Devices Parking Standards

Provide bicycle and micromobility device parking supply to promote sustainable transportation and reduce vehicle parking footprint.

Require all developments except single family to provide adequate long-term and short-term bicycle parking.

Emphasis should be placed on recreational destinations, schools and universities, employment centers, commercial districts, and mixed-use developments.

  • Consider bicycle rooms for long-term bicycle parking that accommodates non-standard bicycles such as recumbent or cargo bikes and provides charging for e-bikes.
  • Utilize the Bicycle Parking chapter of the VTA Bicycle Technical Guidelines for guidance on appropriate parking types, materials, placement, and quantity by land use.
