An Informal Survey of Bicycle Parking Use and Non-Use
The Ann Arbor Main St. Corridor
While conducting an inventory of existing bike parking along the Main St. Corridor I noted where bikes were actually parked. On designated parking racks or on other streetscape objects such as light-polls, trees, parking meters etc. This is not a comprehensive survey. It is limited to the streets inventoried on a given day.
|March 10, Mon (1pm) -||Main St. and the side streets to the East (one block)|
|March 23, Sun (3pm) -||Ashley St. and 4th St., and the side st. to the East and West (one block)|
|April 11, Fri (11am) -||Study Area Between Ann St (North) and Williams St. (South)|
|Non-use: bikes that are parked (locked) to an object of street furniture other then identified parking racks.|
Using the Survey:
The results can be used to develop an idea of the use and non-use of the parking racks
within the study area. They should not be used as a calculation of numbers of bikes located in and
around the study area or the frequency of bike parking.
