Bicycle Parking Rules

Tips for Parking Your Ant Bicycle

4ft of Clearance

Whenever you secure your bike on a sidewalk, you must leave at least 4ft of clearance for pedestrians.

Do Not Block Access Ways

 

Never block access to sidewalks, curb ramps, crosswalks, fire hydrants, bus stops, accessible parking spaces, or loading zones.

Where Not to Park

To handrails or ramps

Parking the bicycle to handrails or a ramp can prevent people, especially those who are using wheelchairs or strollers from getting past the bicycle. Many handrails are also private property.

To private property 

If you park the bicycle to private property, you should have permission from the property owner. Otherwise, it is within their rights to remove the bicycle without notice.

Where You Can (and should) Park Your Ant Bicycle

Bike Racks

Make sure the bicycle is parallel to the rack and that it does not prevent people from using the sidewalk.

Parking Meters

When racks are not available, park the bicycle at a parking meter. Make sure the bicycle is parallel to the pedestrian path of travel, and that it cannot be picked up and removed from the top of the pole. Do not park the bicycle to a meter that is next to an accessible parking space or a commercial loading space.

Sign Posts

You may park a bicycle next to a sign post, except for those used to designate accessible parking (HP) spaces, loading zones, or bus stops. Make sure the bicycle is parallel to the pedestrian path of travel and that it does not prevent people from using the sidewalk.
