Everyday use of bicycles as a means of urban transport requires parking spaces for them at departure and arrival points: neighbourhoods with residential activity, urban facilities, central activity points, parks, green areas and squares, transport connections and the bicycle network itself.
Bicycle parking places can be found throughout the city They are called anchor points and, where possible, you are recommended to anchor the bike by the frame and the wheel. These bicycle parking places, found on public thoroughfares, are for the sole and exclusive use of bicycles.
A study is currently being carried out to identify areas where there is a shortage of public parking places. Based on the results of the study, the plan is to increase the number of ground-level bicycle parking places, in order to encourage cycling in the city. The target is 30,000 places.
