This report assesses the bicycle parking facilities that should be considered for Baseline Station in view of its planned conversion to a mixed LRT and BRT hub. Research covers the scholarly literature relating to bicycle parking provision as well as international precedents and best practices. Case studies of Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) and Metrolinx’s Eglinton Crosstown project are presented, and their approaches adapted to the Ottawa context. On the basis of this analysis, the report develops recommendations for the City of Ottawa relating to the quantity and type of bicycle parking spaces, facility security, the planning context, and other considerations and supporting measures.
