Who are We?
CycloParking manages and develops secure bicycle parkings in the Brussels Region.
Our team informs the public about available spots and responds to subscription requests for a box/parking.
Our aim: to promote cycling among all citizens, both current and future users.
A Project Serving Brussels Residents
CycloParking develops and runs a unique web platform. It allows frequent cyclists who do not have a place to park their bicycle to find controlled-access parking spots near their homes or on their routes.
cycloparking.brussels is the tool that makes cyclists’ daily lives easier: simple to use, a single point of contact to get information, to subscribe to a parking or request the installation of a new one, and to report a technical problem. The rules for assigning spots and the procedures for subscribing are uniform and transparent. Via the platform’s interactive map, the CycloParking team analyzes demand, undertakes the placement of new boxes and looks for alternative solutions (company parkings, garages, abandoned lots or unoccupied premises).
An Evolving Project
17 of the Region’s “communes” or sub-municipalities have joined CycloParking since 2016. Others have signaled their interest. The goal? To bring together all of Brussels’ sub-municipalities.
Starting in 2018, private parkings and big public parkings will join CycloParking. The number of spots available will increase and new cyclists will be able to enjoy the benefit of a secure place to keep their bicycles.
An Innovative Project
In 2018, CycloParking is conducting research on developing a system for remote administration of access to parkings/bicycle boxes. Such a technology will offer flexible and responsive administration of controlled access and subscriptions over a very extensive territory.
A Social Project
CycloParking is a project of CyCLO, a Brussels social sector enterprise that promotes bicycle use through bicycle supply and maintenance, recycling, bike culture, training and innovation. CycloParking forms part of this social sector approach.
Many essential tasks – such as parking maintenance, data collection, diagnostics, and the resolution of problems in the field – are already carried out by CyCLO staff from its program of socio-professional integration: DyNAMO. And needless to say: they go everywhere on cargo bikes!
A Supported Project
During the period 2014-2020, CycloParking enjoys the co-financing of the European Union and the Brussels-Capital Region via the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
CycloParking collaborates with Bruxelles Mobilité and Bike for Brussels, parking.brussels, and the Brussels sub-municipalities of Anderlecht, Auderghem, Berchem-Sainte-Agathe, Bruxelles, Etterbeek, Evere, Forest, Ganshoren, Ixelles, Jette, Koekelberg, Molenbeek-Saint-Jean, Schaerbeek, Saint-Gilles, Uccle, Watermael-Boitsfort and Woluwe-Saint-Pierre…
…and more to come!
