Fairfax County To Update Bicycle Parking Guidelines; Virtual Meeting Set for March 19, 2024

For Immediate Release
March 13, 2024

The Fairfax County Department of Transportation (FCDOT) will host a virtual meeting on the updated Bicycle Parking Guidelines on Tuesday, March 19, 2024, at 6 p.m. FCDOT staff will present information on the updated guidance, answer questions and welcome feedback from attendees.
Lack of secure bicycle parking at home and at daily destinations is a common barrier to bicycling as a convenient, healthy, affordable, and environmentally friendly way to travel. FCDOT believes adequate bicycle parking should be available at residences, places of employment, schools and other destinations, as well as wherever car parking is provided.

While the recently amended Fairfax County Zoning Ordinance (6102. Bicycle Parking Requirements) sets a minimum bike parking rate, the ActiveFairfax Transportation Plan project is updating the 2017 Bicycle Parking Guidelines, which is a supplemental document to determine the desirable rate of short-term to long-term bike parking spaces, acceptable rack and facility design and location guidance, and optional enhancements to improve user comfort. The updated document will ensure the Bicycle Parking Guidelines are following the amended Zoning Ordinance and include current best practices.
