New Bike Racks Installed at Vienna Station

November 21st, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

Last week, Metro installed 32 new “U-Rack” bicycle racks at Vienna station, providing parking space for 64 additional bicyclists, nearly doubling bike parking capacity.  The new racks are located on the north side of the station, in the direction of the parking garage.  The installation is the latest in Metro’s overall Bicycle and Pedestrian Capital Improvement Program.

New bicycle racks at Vienna Metrorail station, with new space for 64 bikes. The existing racks at Vienna were often full or overflowing.

Vienna’s bike racks were often full, even overflowing, causing cyclists to lock their bikes on railings, trees, and lamp posts.  In our last bike parking census, Vienna was the single most capacity-constrained station for bicycle parking.  Last spring, we counted 96 total bikes at the station, with 30 bikes tied to objects other than racks.

With new space for 64 bicycles, we have almost doubled our bike rack capacity at the station, and will hopefully encourage even more bike-to-rail access here.
