100th Bicycle Parking Corral in Portland

Travel Porland Bike Corral picture

(October 28, 2013) - The Portland Bureau of Transportation today announced that New Seasons Market at 4034 SE Hawthorne Boulevard is the site of the 100th bicycle parking corral in the city.  The installation is a milestone in a program that has helped Portland businesses increase on-street customer parking ten-fold in the last nine years.

Bicycle corrals provide efficient use of the street for bicycle parking in areas wiith high demand. Corrals typically can park 12 to 24 bicycles in the same space as one to two cars. The bike corral at the Hawthorne New Seasons is the Bureau’s 100th installation, far surpassing the number of on-street bike parking facilities in any other US city.  View a list of all 100 businesses and bike parking corral locations and a map of all 100 installations.

Bijou cafe corralAt the request of local businesses PBOT has installed 100 on-street bike corrals since 2004; the vast majority have been installed since 2009. This long standing partnership encouraging active transportation with local business has strengthened the health and economic vitality of Portland. Corrals provide a 10 to 1 customer to parking space ratio, free up congested sidewalks, and improve visibility at busy intersections for those on foot or behind the wheel.

Most of Portland's bicycle parking is provided in bike racks on the sidewalk. However, in a growing number of commercial areas the high demand for bicycle parking is too much for the sidewalk. In other cases, local businesses simply prefer bicycles in the parking strip rather than autos in order to attract a customer base that is turning more to the bicycles for transportation. In all cases, corrals are installed at the express request or cooperation of the adjacent businesses.

Altogether, Portland businesses and the city have replaced 163 auto parking spaces with 1,644 bicycle parking spaces. The Transportation Bureau continues to respond to business requests as bike parking demand increases, and currently has 98 additional applications under review.
