Currently many drivers waste time and energy looking for somewhere to park. This increases congestion and pollution. Car traffic should be reduced and primarily steered to off-street parking with clear information on availability. Bicycle parking is still underdeveloped and insecure at many trip destinations and lacking in many neighbourhoods where people have nowhere to keep their bikes indoors. Without sufficient, secure and varied bicycle parking, cycling will not become popular. (Cycling priority 3)
Parking in EU buildings
EUCG have successfully campaigned for bike racks which allow cyclists to attach their frame to the rack will be installed in the ORBN building, and for improvements to the garage floor in building G-6, which now provides better traction and safety for cyclists.
We continue to lobby for…
- better maintenance of service bikes and more flexibility in their use;
- equal treatment of all modes of transport for Commission staff;
- a pump attached to each bike rack;
- easy access to showers (which exist in most buildings) and lockers.
