    Intent

    To promote bicycling and transportation efficiency and reduce vehicle distance traveled. To improve public health by encouraging utilitarian and recreational physical activity.

    Requirements

    Bicycle network

    Design or locate the project such that a functional entryAn entryway that is designed to be used by pedestrians and is open during regular business hours. This does not include any door that is exclusively designated as an emergency exit, or a garage door that is not designed as an entrance for pedestrians. and/or bicycle storage is within a 200-yard (180-meter) walking distance or bicycling distance of a bicycle network that connects to at least one of the following:

    • at least 10 diverse uses (see Appendix 1); or
    • a bus rapid transit stop, light or heavy rail station, commuter rail station, or ferry terminal.

    All destinations must be within a 3-mile (4800-meter) bicycling distance of the project boundary.

    Planned bicycle trails or lanes may be counted if they are fully funded by the date of the certificate of occupancy and are scheduled for completion within one year of that date.

    Bicycle Storage and Shower Rooms
    Case 1. commercial or institutional projects

    Provide short-term bicycle storage for at least 2.5% of all peak visitors, but no fewer than four storage spaces per building.

    Provide long-term bicycle storage for at least 5% of regular building occupants (excluding patients), but no fewer than four storage spaces per building in addition to the short-term bicycle storage spaces.

    Provide at least one on-site shower with changing facility for the first 100 regular building occupants (excluding patients) and one additional shower for every 150 regular building occupants thereafter.

    Case 2. residential projects

    Provide secure, enclosed bicycle storage for at least 30% of regular building occupants (excluding patients), but no less than one storage space per residential unit.

    For all projects

    Short-term bicycle storage must be within 100 feet (30 meters) walking distance of any main entrance. Long-term bicycle storage must be within 100 feet (30 meters) walking distance of any functional entry.

    Bicycle storage capacity may not be double counted: storage that is fully allocated to the occupants of nonproject facilities cannot also serve project occupants.
