If you work in a commercial office building with a freight elevator, the new “Bikes in Buildings” law provides a way for you to request indoor access for your bicycle. The building owner may chose to allow bicycles into the building, stored in space provided by the tenant, or provide other secure bike parking options. Interested employees should speak with their employers who, as tenants of the building, can file a request with the building owner. Individual employees cannot file requests for bicycle access. Get started in your office by talking to other employees who cycle or might be interested in commuting by bicycle.
Let your office/facilities manager or HR representative know that you are interested in bicycle access.
