Bicycle parking inventory in downtown #TCMI


Click for larger view and here for Downtown Traverse City Bicycle Parking Info

This map is an inventory of all the inverted “U’s”, horned bollards, grill racks and bike lockers (inside the parking decks). In total, just over 120 parking options within the DDA district, most of which provide two slots.

See any missing? Where are the holes?
What would you do to improve bicycle parking in downtown?

* Thank you to the DDA for completing this inventory and providing the map.




Contributions greatly appreciated.

    Overall, more options that I would have predicted.

    For missing areas: Front Street, east of Boardman, is missing racks…and the bayfront seems light on racks.

    One serious deficiency is the lack of bike parking at the west end of the Farmers’ Market when it is in operation. There is a rack there but the vendor sprawls entirely around it and chases away anyone who attempts to use it. This has been the case for several seasons, but the DDA, who I believe is responsible for the arrangement, has done nothing to solve the problem.
