Alternative transportation - bicycle storage & changing rooms

SSc3.2 | Possible 1 point


Reduce pollution and land development impacts from automobile use.


For commercial or institutional buildings, provide secure bicycle storage with convenient changing/shower facilities (within 200 yards of the building) for regular building occupants. Maintain bike storage and shower capacity that is sufficient for the greater of 1% of the building occupants or 125% of peak demand for these

For residential buildings, provide covered storage facilities for securing bicycles for 15% or more of building occupants in lieu of changing/shower facilities. These facilities may be provided incrementally as long as the capacity of the facilities supplied exceeds the demand for these facilities.

In campus settings, if secure bicycle storage and showers are provided for all buildings occupants on a campus-wide basis, the maximum distance from individual buildings to showers requirement can be replaced with a requirement that two lines be drawn at 90 degrees to each other through the center of the campus on a campus map and that it be documented that the bicycle storage and showers requirements are met for all building occupants within each quadrant.
