Innovative Bicycle Parking in Tokyo

April 29, 2009

Tokyo is the most densly populated urban area in the world. About 700,000 people ride their bike to work everyday, so the City has installed underground bicycling parking garages where you deposit your bicycle into a special elevator shaft, and it’s wisked away to be stored until you return. You just swipe your card when you return, and the machine gets your bike from the garage and delivers it back to you. Visit OreganLive.com for a video of this system.

    That’s pretty futuristic! Not sure if I’d trust just dropping off my bike to an elevator…..who knows if I’d get the same one back!
