Innovative Bicycle Parking in Downtown Ann Arbor

SHARING THE SIDEWALKS AND THE STREETS

What began as a small effort, today helps distinguish our downtown
‡In the 1990¶s the DDA began an annual commitment to install bike parking ‡Use of revenue from the municipal parking system ‡Strong statement of support for cyclists

Mission: To undertake public improvements that have the greatest impact in strengthening the downtown area and attracting new private investments.

Traditional Bike Parking

‡Foundation of bike parking system ‡Standards that we carry through to non-standard racks:
‡Adequate support in 2 places, U-lock compatible, and theft resistant

Bike Lockers

‡First installation nearly 30 years ago by Cyclesafe ‡DDA took over maintenance & installed over 2 dozen ‡They activate space in parking structures & lots & offer secure option for commuters

Art Hoops:
commemorating and celebrating special events & places

3 Dozen art hoops installed to commemorate: ‡100th Anniversary of the Ann Arbor Art Center ‡50th Anniversary of the Ann Arbor Art Fairs ‡Grand Opening of the addition to UM¶s Museum of Art The hoops are highly used, but this project taught us to have more connection to place moving forward.

Art Hoops:
commemorating and celebrating special events & places

Seasonal, on-street bike racks
High demand for sidewalk space required new solutions
‡Very active areas need to accommodate café tables, retail racks, pedestrian walk space, bike parking & more ‡When the location is right, an on-street space can now accommodate many more customers.

Event Parking

Bike Parking on Meter Posts

Introduction of multi-space meter system Wanting to preserve the ³unofficial´ bike parking spaces in high-demand areas, the DDA installed secure bike parking on the old meter posts

Ensuring Continued Use:
