APBP Bicycle Parking Webinar Series
Four sessions: January 23, February 27, March 13, April 10 | 3:00 to 4:00 p.m. Eastern
Past sessions are available as video recordings; links to the recordings will be sent automatically at registration.
This spring, join APBP for a series of four webinars that covers all aspects of bicycle parking. The series begins with an overview and discussion of basic principles, followed by three focused discussions on applications and techniques used by different entities with an interest in accommodating bicycle parking demand. (See webinar agendas for additional details.) Using videos, schematics from actual projects and case studies, this series examines the role bicycle parking can play in creating healthy, sustainable communities.
Who should attend? Municipal staff, transit agency staff, managers of educational, corporate and healthcare campuses, and members of Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committees (BPACs), as well as elected officials and staff of bicycle advocacy organizations. Intended for both the experienced agency manager and those new to developing bicycle parking solutions, examples are drawn from across North America to show how a comprehensive approach to parking can help achieve both public and private goals while integrating with other land use, transit and sustainability efforts.
Webinars are one hour each and take place on Wednesdays, January through April, beginning at 3:00 p.m. Eastern time. One digital file copy of APBP's Bicycle Parking Guidelines, 2nd Edition, is included with the purchase of the series.
Topics in the series include:
#1, The Basics of Bicycle Parking (APBP strongly recommends viewing #1 as a prerequisite to #2, #3, and #4)
Live session recorded on Wednesday, January 23
The first session reviews some of the basic principles of accommodating bicycles in both public and institutional environments. We will review types of parking in current use for both short and long term parking, and describe the conditions and constraints which guide selection of parking strategies and equipment. The session will look globally at the organization of the APBP Bicycle Parking Guidelines and preview the following sessions. Topics include core concepts, rack design and desirable features, site planning and innovations.
#2, Municipal Bicycle Parking Programs
Live session recorded on Wednesday, February 27
Using information presented in the first webinar, this session focuses on the application of the basic principles to develop a municipal or regional bicycle parking program. A particular point of the presentation involves the development of an on-street parking program with both sidewalk and high capacity components. The APBP guide to development of codes and policies is discussed, as are funding and delivery methods for public bicycle parking programs.The session also covers requirements for residential, civic, commercial and industrial programs and the impact of bike share programs on bicycle parking.
#3, Bicycle Parking and Transit
Wednesday, March 13 | 3:00 to 4:00 p.m. ET
This webinar module introduces and describes techniques and programs used by transit agencies to encourage and accommodate high levels of bicycle access to a variety of transit modes. Particular attention will be paid to use of higher security and capacity techniques, including staffed parking, lockers and "in-line” station parking solutions. Forecasting demand will be discussed, as will security and management concerns unique to transit. Bicycle parking will be examined as a means to leverage other transit and bicycle infrastructure development through thoughtfully designed and managed parking programs. The session will also cover design, layout, and management of lockers; bike stations; and adapting bicycle parking to specific transit modes.
#4, Institutional and Campus Bicycle Parking Programs
Wednesday, April 10 | 3:00 to 4:00 p.m. ET
The final session looks at how major employment centers and institutions such as hospitals, college campuses and office/industrial centers can meet employee transportation needs both independently and in conjunction with public and transit parking programs. Techniques such as bike rooms and sheds will be examined, as will the impact of proposed bike share facilities on existing bicycle parking capacity. The session includes examples from the University of Washington and Microsoft.
Who should attend? Municipal staff, transit agency staff, managers of educational, corporate and healthcare campuses, and members of Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committees (BPACs), as well as elected officials and staff of bicycle advocacy organizations.
