Business Guide for Bike Racks

To encourage cyclists to stop by your business, you’ll want to consider a bike rack solution near your business. City ordinance does not allow bicycle parking except in stalls or racks provided for that purpose (Sec. 8-45).

If you are interested in installing a bike rack on the sidewalk near your business, use the “Application to Occupy Right of Way” form available on the York City Website.

On the Application to Occupy Right of Way form, use the Miscellaneous category, select other, and in the space write Bike Rack and give the dimensions. In the location portion of the form, fill in the location for the bike racks and the beginning date of work. For estimated date of completion write “Permanent.” Ignore the rest of the boxes until you get to the place for your name and signature as the applicant. Submit the form and the $25 application fee to City Hall.

To submit the form electronically, use the website to submit the form or email a scanned copy of the form to Public Works (publicworks@cityofyork.net) and then call the city to pay the fee with a credit card over the phone.
