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