Council has installed more than 200 free public bike racks across Brisbane, and there are hundreds more provided by other organisations. Council’s City Plan 2014 requires bike parking to be provided for many new buildings, and thousands of bike parking spaces have been approved as part of new developments across the city.
All Council libraries have bike racks, and the number of other Council facilities with racks is growing.

End of trip facilities include bike racks, lockers, showers, changing rooms and, if you’re lucky, irons, hair dryers and a laundry service! They have been compulsory for major new developments, such as office buildings and hospitals, since 2010, and the number of end of trip facilities in Brisbane continues to expand. If you’re not sure whether the building you live, work or study in has end of trip facilities, ask your building manager or a colleague who already rides to work.
