AbstractAs the University of Arizona Campus continues to grow, change and expand, automobile parking in and around Campus becomes increasingly scarce. As a result of this growth, bicycling to and around Campus may become the more convenient mode of transportation and can be expected to increase. This poses new problems of safety and efficiency relating to commuting to Campus on a daily basis by bicycle. Currently, Campus does not have a comprehensive plan for bicycle parking facilities. The purpose of this thesis was to evaluate existing data and site conditions and produce a comprehensive bicycle parking plan predominantly based on building capacity, building use, and circulation routes. From this plan, five parking clusters were identified and a prototype of a facility designed. Results from the study suggested that current bicycle parking allotments were not positively associated with high building use and capacity.
