Bicycle Parking Advocates works to improve bike parking, fight bike theft, and create better bike insurance programs.

2017 Advocacy Priorities for Seattle

  1. Improve bike parking requirements within new development and new temporary parking requirements for major sporting and entertainment events.
  2. Improve administrative efficiency and success-rate in pursuing bike thefts with one dedicated officer as a central point of contact to coordinate bike theft investigations among the precincts and the major crimes division of the Seattle Police Department.
  3. Secure funding in the Seattle city budget to fund public education of voluntary bike indexing systems and coordinate indexing efforts with bike shops, paid event bike rides, and bike swaps.
