Riding Bikes and Scooters

The City of Atlanta is committed to creating a safe, comfortable, and enjoyable network of bicycle infrastructure for people of all ages and abilities. The National Association of City Transportation Officials (NACTO) Urban Street Design and Urban Bikeway Design Guides serve as the City of Atlanta’s bike lane design standards.

Bike Rack Program

Publicly accessible bicycle racks are essential to the City of Atlanta’s continued focus on expanding and encouraging multi-modal transportation. To request the installation of an inverted U bicycle rack or a bicycle corral in the public right of way, submit a Bicycle Parking Application to ATLDOT@AtlantaGa.Gov.  

For more information on bicycle rack location best practices check out:

Note:  A request for a bicycle rack does not guarantee installation. Requests will be evaluated based upon available right of way space, bicycle parking demand, and availability of nearby bicycle parking. If you are a resident requesting bicycle parking adjacent to a business, we recommend obtaining support from the business owner and providing contact information.
