The City's Bicycle Parking Ordinance is designed to encourage development projects to include alternative parking methods that accommodate bicycle travel. The Ordinance requires that any new development which provides vehicular parking areas, provide bicycle parking at a rate of 10% of the proposed vehicular parking. It also allows projects to substitute a percent of required vehicular parking by providing additional bicycle parking, thereby reducing parking lot areas. This Ordinance ensures that Greenville will continue it's efforts to meet the needs of it's citizens and visitors while protecting the environment.
The city has recently installed Bicycle Racks throughout downtown. See the plan for locations. For additional information on types of bicycle racks and other information on our ordinances view the Bicycle Parking Guidelines.
