Rack ‘Em Up!!

Project by Walt Staton

May 7, 2003

For A. Curtis’s GIS class

A brief look at bike racks on LSU’s campus

Overview…

• Currently, LSU has a little over 100 bike racks on campus
• On an average day, there are about 350 bikes on campus
• According to the Master Plan, 11% of students ride their bikes now
• If bike lanes were created, 36% of students said they would begin to ride a bike to school

Are there enough racks?

Are they in the right places?

Where are they now?

Bike Rack Locations

0 – 10 bikes

11 – 20 bikes

21 – 40 bikes

Library

Union

CEBA

Bikes not on racks

Library

Coates

17 bikes on the rail

Lockett

Un-racked bikes

Design

1 - 4 bikes

5 - 9 bikes

10 - 20 bikes

Racks with no bikes

Bikeless racks

Campus bike density

Where there’s bikes, there’s students

Bike rack density

Where there’s racks, there’s not necessarily bikes…

Bike rack density

Do the densities for bikes and racks correlate?

Are they properly located?

It’s best if the rack is within 30 seconds walking-distance from the rider’s destination (about 35 meters)

30 second walk

60 second walk

Out of 30-second range

More bikers!

According to the campus master plan, there should be a 327% increase in bike riders if bike paths are created.

Bikes per Rack with increase

Racks can hold 10 - 12 bikes each, if properly placed

- When put against a wall, a rack can only hold 7-8

8 bikes per rack is a desirable target

- Allows for unexpected peaks in use

Future problem spots

More than 8 bikes per rack
