What do you want from bike parking?

Designs for cycle parking at the new Panmure Railway Station could be wheeled out across the region.

Auckland Transport wants feedback on its designs for safe, dry and secure bike parking at Panmure (attached).

“We think we have created a simple functional structure that provides cyclists with secure and sheltered bike parking, now we want to know if it works for cyclists and other users of Panmure station,” says community transport manager Matthew Rednall.

“Bike parking is going to be rolled-out to stations across Auckland and it’s important we give people something they want and they will use.”

Cycle Action Auckland chair Barbara Cuthbert is keen on developing a practical template for developing bike parking facilities across Auckland. "Good bike parking will encourage more people to combine public transport and cycling and reduce pressure on park and ride. It’s good timing to do this survey while the public is responding to AT’s review of city- wide parking policies. Well done, Auckland Transport.“


Visit www.at.govt.nz/panmurebikepark to view the designs and give feedback. You can have your say until 4 July.
