Bike Rack request form
Salt Lake City will provide bike racks, by request and as the City's staff time/budget allows, in business / commercial areas on the public right of way or at a City-owned facility. There is no cost to the business for this service.
Bike racks installed through this program will not count as meeting
Salt Lake City's required bicycle parking for new or renovated buildings.
The City Cannot install bike racks on private property, including on
property owned by other public agencies (state, schools, etc.)
As of 2018, bike rack installations will be done once a year, typically
in the spring or early summer. Requests received after the cut-off date
will be held until the next year:
- 2018 Requests: Must be received by Sunday, May 20, 2018.
- 2019 Requests: Must be received by Friday, March 1, 2019.
This Bike Rack request form should be filled out by a business owner or
manager who would like to request a bike rack. We need to have contact
information for someone who can meet City staff at the site to determine
the best location for the rack. If you are a customer or employee, please
ask the business owner or manager to submit the request for a bike

To be determined
|Type of Rack Preferred *
OPTION 1: Black inverted U- rack
This rack parks two bicycles - one on either side of the rack. Multiple racks may be installed at the same location.
Red bicycle rack
This rack parks four bicycles - one on either side of the rack at each
"wheel". Only one red bicycle rack will be installed per block
OPTION 3: Bicycle corral
Bike corrals consist of a rack that will park 10 bikes, installed from
April to November in a parking space on the street. Bike corrals are
removed for the winter for snow plowing. Bike corrals are only installed
at the request of an adjacent host business.
Permanent bike racks (Options 1 & 2) are preferred
to bike corrals where space permits. Permanent racks provide year-round
parking and also minimize City labor costs installing / uninstalling the
corrals. If you request a bike corral, City staff will evaluate your site
to determine if permanent bike racks are an option. For more info, please
