Santa Monica’s First On Street Bike Corrals Now Open – Santa Monica Real Estate
A typical bike corral uses one car parking space and can accommodate 10 to 14 bikes. In a space one car would park, a bike corral can provide parking for 14 or more customers to patronize local business. The corrals we celebrated Saturday are unique in that they were installed without removing any car parking but instead are utilizing previously red buffer zones that have now been repurposed to provide secure parking for an additional 36 bikes on Main Street in Santa Monica.
Parking for an additional 36 bikes without adding congestion to sidewalks or removing any car parking. These corrals will provide parking for visitors who can now enjoy restaurants and shopping, while actively experiencing and connecting with local businesses.
