In an effort to promote environmentally sustainable transportation, the City of South Pasadena has installed an additional 196 bicycle parking spaces at various locations around town.
After multiple years of public outreach, the city, in coordination with ActiveSGV, was able to select the locations that best reflect the community’s interests and the current commuting patterns. The installed infrastructure allows for secure and convenient storage of bicycles.
The shelters placed at Heritage Plaza, Library Park, and at Huntington and Fremont provide covered parking, protecting the bicycles from environmental elements. The hitches have been installed close to the entrances of key destinations to allow for accessibility and visibility.
The vibrant green color yields a noticeable appearance, making it easier for residents and commuters to locate the hitches when visiting the local shops, grocery stores, restaurants, playgrounds and workspaces.
The project was funded from a Bicycle Transportation Account (BTA) grant through Caltrans which only required a 10% match of city funds.
