CDOT (Chicago Department of Transportation) works hard to consistently serve bicyclists throughout the City by installing roughly 500 bike racks on city sidewalks each year. It can help to locate the best places for these racks by using this map to put in a request where more bike parking is needed.

CDOT review requests in the field looking for sites on the public right-of-way that don’t interfere with pedestrian travel and are clear of other street furniture. The criteria for new rack placement, including examples of where CDOT generally do and do not install racks, are listed in detail at

While CDOT tries to conduct field surveys as promptly as possible, the process can sometimes take several months.
