Bike Rack Program

gs racks not bike rack

Classy Tallahasseans are increasingly using bicycles to get around town and local business owners are seeing more and more customers patronizing their businesses by bike. However, many public spaces, popular commercial districts, area parks and local attractions do not have sufficient bike parking to meet the current demand. Throughout the community, this has led to the rapid spread of the 4T epidemic - Tying Things to Trees. In response to community requests to increase local bicycle parking and avoid the continued abuse of trees and traffic signs, the Tallahassee City Commission approved the creation of the Bike Rack program in Spring 2014. The bike rack program will provide public bike parking along public right-of-ways and in Placemaking districts throughout the MultiModal Transportation District (MMTD).
