Chicago’s new on-street parking scheme has drivers reeling. But replacing parking meters with pay-and-display kiosks has a very serious impact on bike parking.
Losing 36,000 parking meters essentially means cyclists are losing 36,000 bike parking spots.
We have written to the city urging it to put some of the money generated by the lease with LAZ Parking toward bike parking.
June marks the start of the City’s budget process. It is important to let your aldermen know that you want him or her to make bike parking replacement a priority. Be sure they know that bike parking is vital to your life as a resident in their ward.
