Durham Bicycle Rack Program

The City of Durham has a program for placing new bicycle racks. The city usually installs bicycle racks only on public property. To suggest a location for a new rack, use the online bicycle rack location form. For information, email Dale McKeel or call 919-560-4366, ext. 36421.

Racks must be installed on public property, usually on sidewalks or at parks, schools, and other government buildings. To facilitate rack installation, consider talking to nearby business owners to assess whether the bike rack installation is welcome.

Sidewalks must be wide enough to accommodate a rack. Please review the city’s bicycle rack placement guidelines (PDF) prior to making a request.
