Regional Bike Parking Program - 2017
MAPC is pleased to continue the Bicycle Parking Program for 2017! This year, MAPC is teaming up with nine other regional planning agencies throughout Massachusetts to provide an expanded program.
All of MAPC's 101 cities and towns are eligible to participate in the program.
MAPC particularly encourages communities to install bike racks in business districts and at public buildings. We have found that these locations are often where bike-parking demand is greater than supply.
Key attributes of the 2017 program include:
- Discounted pricing — typically 20-40 percent off our vendors' regular pricing.
- Joint purchasing under M.G.L. c.30B by MAPC. Eligible communities simply sign on to our procurement to participate.
- Full selection of eligible bike-parking equipment:
- Inverted U racks in multiple styles
- High-capacity racks that hold up to 14 bikes
- Cycle stalls for in-street bicycle parking
- Tool stands
- Shelters and canopies
- Stacked parking for tight areas
Equipment from Saris, Dero, and Creative Metalworks
