The bike boom is not slowing down and best-of-class bike parking solutions are becoming a competitive advantage. Fortunately, bike parking is a relatively small investment. Especially when you think of the astronomical cost of a parking space: typically $10,000 to $30,000 per space (see Donald Shoup’s groundbreaking book The High Cost of Free Parking for the thorough breakdown of cost factors). Then there’s the monthly maintenance cost per space — usually several hundred dollars.

As tech companies look to lure workers back to office, some are offering incentives to make the daily commute a little more tolerable. That sometimes means making it easier to commute by bicycle or, increasingly, e-bike—a mode of transport that exploded during the pandemic.

Given the post-pandemic landscape, we strongly believe e-bikes will be an effective tool in fighting the back-to-work carmageddon. The reasons are multifold: E-bikes are naturally a socially-distanced mode; they’re on-demand and efficient — riders aren’t beholden to bus schedules and won’t get stuck in traffic; and they’re an equalizer — they work well for those who don’t think of themselves as cyclists; aren’t in tip-top physical shape; have a commute that’s longer than a few miles; or need to haul kiddos and groceries.
