Get a free bike parking rack for your organization
Did you know the City can provide you with a free bicycle parking rack? Contact the Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) to request a rack be installed on the sidewalk in front of your business (as long as the location meets minimum requirements).
Need more bike parking? Consider a bike corral
Want a bike corral near your business? In some settings, PBOT can also set up a bike corral near your business , though there is a cost, and additional considerations. Corrals provide on-street bike parking for 12 to 24 bicycles, so if you regularly see 10 or more bikes parked outside your business, this may be a great fit for you. The City of Portland prefers locating on-street bike parking corrals at street corners in order to add additional transportation benefits, such as creating defacto curb extensions to shorten pedestrian’s crossing of the street and improving visibility for cars turning into traffic from side streets.

Have something more artistic in mind? Build on the brand of your business or unique character of your business district with a customized “art rack”. PBOT offers step-by-step instructions and tips.
