Constitutional Privilage to Park Cycles

These two pictures are of the indoor bicycle parking facility at Constitution Square downtown. It is a three tower office tower complex. The bikes take up at least 8 car parking spaces. This photo was taken late in the afternoon, so many cyclists would have already left work. It certainly holds one lot of bikes.

I wonder how many other parking garages or hidden cycle parking lots are in the downtown, unseen by the public and thus contributing to the unseen and uncommented upon growth of cycling as a mode of transport.


  1. It certainly helps answer the age-old question, "what do we do with all those underground parking lots when everybody stops commuting by car?"

  2. But I would like to add there are underground bike parking spaces at:

    - 99 bank, down left ramp from Queen, supervised during the day. Also showers on B1 and also a Y upstairs. Maybe ~40 bikes room
    - World Exchange plaza, N side - maybe ~100 bikes room, unsupervised
    - City hall, near N elevators, ~50 bikes room
