BikeCorrals provide public bike parking in neighborhoods throughout NYC and are typically installed in the curbside lane of a street. This bike parking solution is great for places where demand for bicycle parking exceeds the available sidewalk space.
A standard BikeCorral includes bike racks that can park 12 bikes comfortably, however each corral is designed for its site and size will vary. All BikeCorrals includes safety elements: pavement markings, vertical delineators, and where possible may include planters and public seating, depending on partner maintenance capacity.
Generally, NYC DOT requires a maintenance partner for our BikeCorrals to keep the space clear of snow and debris and to inform us of any damage or issues. A partner can also request additional elements such as planter and seating depending on their capacity. Day-to-day maintence of a corral is minor and anyone, from a business to a resident, may volunteer.
Due to the surge in cycling during COVID-19, NYC DOT is deploying BikeCorrals at locations without partners. NYC DOT is installing these BikeCorrals in planned NYC DOT projects that feature improvements such as curb extensions, pedestrian safety islands, and pedestrian areas. NYC DOT is monitoring these locations to determine how the sites fare in terms of maintenance and if the program can be expanded.
BikeCorral Application Process
After receiving a BikeCorral application, NYC DOT will review for feasibility by assessing site context, conditions, and demand for bike parking. Each BikeCorral design is specific to its site and is submitted for internal review. Designs incorporate pedestrian safety enhancements where possible. Installed BikeCorrals will be added to the growing network of citywide public bike parking.

What is a BikeCorral?
BikeCorrals are bike racks installed in the curbside lane of the street (instead of on the sidewalk) to provide public bike parking. All BikeCorrals are property of NYC DOT but need a maintenance partner to help monitor the location, and be responsible for basic maintenance – keeping it clean and clear of debris, litter, and snow, reporting damages, etc.
How much does it cost?
It is free to apply for a BikeCorral. NYC DOT provides all the necessary infrastructure and safety elements. As a maintenance partner there might be costs associated with keeping the planters planted with healthy plants.
How long does it take?

Who may apply?
Who can be a maintenance partner?
Potential maintenance partners may be businesses, community groups, and/or individual volunteers.
What are the responsibilities of the maintenance partner?
The maintenance partner is responsible for reporting damages back to the NYC DOT BikeCorral team, keeping it clean and clear of debris, litter, and snow.
Does NYC DOT inspect the BikeCorrals?
NYC DOT inspects all BikeCorrals periodically every year to ensure corral partners are fulfilling their responsibilities. NYC DOT will work with the partner to get non-compliant BikeCorrals back into compliance, but if unable to remain compliant, NYC DOT has the authority to remove the BikeCorral.
Are BikeCorrals open to the public or can they be for my customers only?
What about bikes that have been left or abandoned there?
NYPD is responsible for removing personal property locked to the BikeCorral. Contact the local NYPD precinct.
NYC's Department of Sanitation (DSNY) is responsible for removing derelict bikes deemed garbage locked to the BikeCorral. Report an unusable bike locked to public property to NYC 311.
How many bikes can it park?
The current BikeCorral design can park 12 bicycles. The design could potentially be expanded to include additional bike sleds.
