Bicycle Parking Recommendations

The bike plan recommends adherence to the Association of Pedestrian and Bicycle Professionals' Essentials of Bike Parking (2015). Our current bike parking guidelines reflect this recommendation. If you would like to inquire about bicycle parking, email or visit our bike parking page

Other Considerations

The bike plan covers a wide range of topics, from those mentioned above to outreach programs and bicycle detection and signals. Outreach programs highlighted in the plan include Bike Month celebrations, a Lights On! campaign, road user respect campaigns and much more.

It also provides guidance towards adequately accommodating bicycles at traffic signals with methods including actuating signal detectors to recognize a bicycle and changing the length of certain phases. Overall, this plan shows how Billings can become more bicycle friendly and it will take support of the community for full implementation.
