Dates & Times

The City of Ottawa has initiated a consultation to determine priority bus stop locations for high quality ring-and-post bike racks.

In fall 2018, the City installed 25 ring-and-post bike racks at bus stops across Ottawa to encourage transit ridership and cycling by facilitating multi-modal trips. An additional 25 ring-and-post bike racks will be installed at bus stops across Ottawa in the first half of 2019.

These new bike racks are in addition to the City’s current bike rack request program.

Tell Us What You Think

Residents have submitted ring-and-post bike rack requests using the online feedback form. If you have any comments, please provide them directly to the project manager listed below.

Next Steps

The City evaluated all ring-and-post bike rack requests. The City selected 50 bus stop locations that offer sufficient space so as not to impede transit patrons, restrict accessibility or interfere with operations and maintenance. The City also considered connectivity to the cycling network and transit service in selecting bus stop locations.

In 2019, following Council direction to extend this pilot project, the City will install up to 50 additional ring-and-post bike racks at bus stops across Ottawa based on resident requests and staff evaluation.
