Employee Bike Access Legislation
The San Francisco Bicycle Coalition was instrumental in passing legislation in 2012 that improves bike access for employees working in commercial buildings. The Tenant Bicycle Parking in Existing Commercial Buildings Ordinance encourages commuting to work by bicycle and requires commercial property owners to allow tenants to bring their bicycles into their building or provide secure bicycle parking.
Bike Parking Requirements
After years of advocacy from the SF Bicycle Coalition, the Planning Department has made changes to require more bike parking in both residential and commercial buildings, and a slew of other ways to improve the security of bike parking all across the city. The code sets new minimums for required bike parking in all newly constructed buildings, including offices. Bike parking is also required in all city-owned and leased buildings. Learn how the new planning code ensures that all new buildings in San Francisco provide adequate bike parking.
