The City of Hyattsville has partnered with Arrow Bicycle to add more yellow bike racks around local businesses and around the City. The additional bike racks will support casual riders, residents, shoppers, and visitors who shop or travel within the City while reducing traffic for motorists.
The City has put together a system where business and property owners are able to request bicycle racks to increase the use of different forms of transportation to and from business locations. Bike racks help secure bicycles from theft and create active space for bikes to park while not being used. The racks provided as part of this program are basic, inverted-U style racks (see photo below). These racks are adequate for short-term parking. Business and property owners taking advantage of this program must note that the bike racks installed as part of this program are meant for public use and can be used by anyone at any time.
How to Apply
The Bicycle Parking Rack Request Form below can be completed by the owner or administrator of the location making the request. Requests can also be submitted by the general public for consideration. Once the application is submitted, a City staff member will contact the applicant to discuss next steps. If you have any questions, please contact Lillian Lamptey at firstname.lastname@example.org.
