Atlanta Regional Commission Bike-Transit Parking Best Practices Guidelines

Atlanta, Georgia
This task involved primary data collection using virtual reality 360 cameras to allow stakeholders to visually experience the transit stations without having to visit them. The virtual reality imagery also helped identify potential locations for bicycle parking facilities.
UrbanTrans was a key member of a team that developed a strategic bike-transit parking plan for the Atlanta Region. Our role was to develop a best practice guidebook for ARC to support the implementation of a regional bicycle parking at transit program. The team identified case studies from across the US and conducted interviews to understand how other agencies operate bike to transit programs and gather lessons learned in implementation.UrbanTrans also supported the team in conducting bicycle audits around major transit stations within the Atlanta region. This led to the development of access improvement plans and an understanding of current bicycle parking conditions. This task involved primary data collection using virtual reality 360 cameras. This visual data allowed stakeholders to experience the transit stations without having to visit them. The virtual reality imagery also helped identify potential locations for bicycle parking facilities.Results: The final best practices guidebook covered topics such as implementation costs, estimating use, recommended infrastructure types, membership models and marketing strategies.This project was a part of ARC’s wider “Walk!, Bike! Thrive!” plan, which won the Transportation Planning Excellence Award from the Federal Highway Administration in 2017.
