Bike share can improve the pedestrian experience, help reduce traffic fatalities, and reduce inequity in cities’ transportation networks. To support cities across the country working towards all of these goals, NACTO has released the NACTO Bike Share Siting Guide, which highlights best practices in station placement and design.

This guidance is part of a collection of resources created in collaboration with the Better Bike Share Partnership. It is made possible with a grant from The JPB Foundation to further the conversation around equity in bike share.

About The Guide

The NACTO Bike Share Station Siting Guide provides high-level guidance on physical bike share station siting types and principles. It highlights best practices in station siting from around the United States and provides guidance on bike share station typologies and principles, providing examples of a variety of siting types and photos and technical drawings to show how bike share stations can be situated in the streetscape.
