discussion points
Discussion Points
  • Definition of Bike-Transit Center and Network
  • Goals of BTCIP
  • Overview of Process
  • Implementation Plans for Cities
  • Overview of Recommendations
  • Concepts and Updates
A Bike-Transit Center is a facility that provides at least twenty (20) fee-based, secure bicycle parking spaces adjacent to a transit stop in an effort to encourage bike-to-transit connections.

A Network is a group of bike-transit centers that can be accessed at multiple sites, tied together by a uniform access system, administration, and identity.


The BTCIP lays the groundwork for a network of bike-transit centers by:

  • Providing tools and setting standards that can be used by LA County cities and agencies to develop bike-transit centers
  • Developing bike-transit center implementation plans for 4 communities
overview of process
Overview of Process
  • Creation of project goals, methods, and timeline
  • Formation of a Technical Advisory Committee and local sub-committees from 4 communities
  • Multiple meetings with each of the local committees, end-user demand and pricing surveys at 3 Metro stations, and focus group in Santa Monica
  • Survey of bicycle parking at 15 different transit agencies and municipalities countrywide
  • Report Preparation: tool box & 4 community plans

Implementation Plans

  • Each of the participating communities has a plan or “tool kit” for implementation of at least one bike-transit center
  • Each community will be able to use the implementation plan to apply for funding

proposed recommendations for metro
Proposed Recommendations for Metro
  • Facilities: Bike-Transit Centers need to be considered in conjunction with joint development, transit oriented development, and other development at locations where bike parking demand can be demonstrated and/or where automobile parking demand is high.
  • Technology: Metro needs to evaluate emerging technologies for uniform access control and membership management systems and select a preferred system for bicycle parking facilities being added to the system.
recommendations continued
Recommendations Continued
  • Recognizable: Implement a consistent color, signage and identification scheme for all bike-transit centers while recognizing local elements.
  • Design: Use consistent design concepts for future bike-transit centers.
  • Operations: Metro needs to selectan operating scenario that will simplify administration, facilitate bi-lingual and customer-friendly access.

Recommendations Continued
  • Marketing: Bike-transit centers need to be supported by ongoing marketing and public relations programs.

• Pricing: Metro needs to develop a flexible pricing structure that encourages efficient and effective use of its parking facilities to encourage more bicycle use.

• Funding: Pursue creative financing, as well as traditional methods, for funding for capital investment and operating costs.
