Neighborhood Bike Rack Program
One of the goals of the City of Saint Paul’s Comprehensive Plan is to create public bike parking facilities to increase bicycling citywide. To meet that goal, the Department of Public Works offers the Neighborhood Bike Rack Program.
Through the Neighborhood Bike Rack Program, Saint Paul businesses and organizations can request the installation of approved bike racks on public right of way in front of their property at no cost. In return, the applicant agrees to provide snow removal to maintain access to the bike racks during the winter.
In order to be eligible for the program, your business or organization must be located in the City of Saint Paul, and must be able to demonstrate a lack of space feasible for bike rack installation on your property. Also, all bike rack installations must meet all applicable accessibility and construction standards. For details about the bike rack program, including eligibility requirements, responsibilities, and restrictions, read the Neighborhood Bike Rack Program Guide.
To apply for the program, fill out the Neighborhood Bike Rack Program Application and return it to the contact person identified on the form. The Neighborhood Bike Rack Program is an ongoing Public Works program and is available to businesses and organizations throughout Saint Paul.
