Making bicycle parking in Amsterdam easier

More and more people use bicycles to reach their destination in Amsterdam. Because of the increasing number of cyclists, it is not always easy to park your bike in the city.

The municipality is working hard to expand bicycle parking availability. Mijksenaar is working with them to make bicycle parking easier to find and communication about bicycle parking rules clearer.
The resulting ideas from a number of inspiring workshops were used to create wayfinding designs for bicycle parking.

After a first test in 2015, the designs for the signage have been adapted and repositioned. After a second positive test, finding a parking space and storing your bike will soon be a lot easier!
