Purchase Bike Racks


Neat, orderly bike parking, like at Whole Foods Market in East Liberty, can enhance a business’ image and bottom line as opposed to the alternative.

 

Background on Bike Racks

Even though providing bike parking is the law, not all bike racks are created equal. BikePGH works with you to choose the right location and right design to best meet your needs.

You can install any type of bike rack on private property without a permit. If you wish to install a rack in the public right-of-way the rack design must conform to standards set by the Public Art Commission and ADA, and you must obtain a $25 encroachment permit. You may put several racks and/or locations on a single $25 permit.
