Biking Around Downtown Ann Arbor

Biking in Ann ArborThe greater Ann Arbor area has over 79 miles of bike lanes. Downtown Ann Arbor boasts the City’s first two-way protected facility, the William Street Bikeway. A second two-way protected bikeway on First Street was completed in the Fall of 2020.  The bikeway network has been expanded to include Division Street and the Miller-Catherine area.

Bike parking is plentiful downtown with over 1000 spaces, options include:

Bike Hoops: Conveniently located on the sidewalk throughout downtown.

Bike Houses: Due to space limitations, only those commuting to downtown and have a go!pass through their employer are eligible to rent space in one of two bike houses. (Not available for bike storage. ) Featuring 24 hour secure access and surveillance, bike houses are located at the Ann Ashley parking structure and the Maynard structure. Spots can be reserved for $75 per year. For more information email or call 734-994-6697.

Covered Bike Parking: Covered locations are available at all parking structures.

Seasonal On-Street Racks: Deployed every spring, these racks provide additional parking in the warmer months.

Business Bike Parking Pilot Permit Program:  The City of Ann Arbor and the DDA have launched a pilot program to add more bicycle parking within the public right-of-way around Ann Arbor as framed in the city’s Vision Zero transportation plan.  This program builds on the DDA’s existing seasonal on-street bike rack program that repurposes on-street parking spaces during warm-weather months.  The pilot includes new materials and maintenance partnerships to support year-round use.  Businesses, non-profits, property owners or other organizations across the city may request the placement of a bike rack near their location at no expense during the pilot. To submit a request, visit Stream, select Apply, then search for the “Business Bike Parking Pilot Permit Program.” Applicants will first need to register in Stream before filling out the form.
