Poster: Bicycle Storage in Multifamily Housing

Monday, May 8, 2017 | 1:30 p.m. - 2:30 p.m.

Although building dense communities may encourage cycling, multi-unit residences often have crowded or underutilized bicycle storage areas that hinder active transportation choices. Using market housing as well as faculty and staff housing at the University of British Columbia campus, this study conducted a resident survey and field studies to determine bicycle storage demands and find latent demand. This study presents recommendations to improve municipal regulations regarding bicycle storage. It also suggests how planners can increase cycling mode share by improving bicycle parking hardware, shared storage design, and storage management programs.
