Adopt a Bike Rack

From the Next Great City newsletter:

Since Mayor Nutter took office, the Streets Department has installed over 1,400 bike racks as part of an Adopt-a-Rack program. The program provides a city installed u-shaped bike rack to community groups and individuals that accept maintenance responsibility for the rack. Thanks to the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, the U.S. Department of Energy is funding a new round of the Adopt-a-Rack program. The department expects to be able to install about 500 additional racks through the program.

For more information about how you or your organization can apply to have a bicycle rack installed in front of your property, please visit and click on "Bike Racks" located under the heading "Other."
