Free Bike Parking at Goulburn Street Parking Station

From Tuesday 2 August 2011, the Goulburn Street Parking Station will have free secure bike parking.

Swipe cards providing permanent access, 24 hours a day, to 28 securely caged spaces on the ground level are available on payment of a $20 deposit.

Casual users can visit Daniel Cresswell on site and get a temporary pin number (valid for 24 hours) any time they need secure parking – for example, when seeing a show at the Capital Theatre, having noodles in Chinatown or going to the cinema.

City of Sydney has installed more than 100 new bike parking locations this year and are continuously installing more. You can suggest locations on the City’s website  at www.cityofsydney.nsw.gov.au/AboutSydney/ParkingAndTransport/Cycling/BikeParking.asp.

Bike parking is now available next to one fifth of the City’s car share spaces. The City is currently investigating opportunities for installing bike parking next to car share spaces.

    Great idea, along the lines of Cycle Central in Manly, but only one for the city?
    Surely we need one of these in almost every parking station, for a reasonable fee of course.
    I have a problem with my employer (state government) not providing suitable secure bike parking and not allowing access before 7 am or after 6 pm. Not much good if you want to go for a swim after your ride/before work or stay in town for a training course or show.
    Is there a list anywhere of commercial carparks that provide secure bike parking?

    This is good, although if I was eating noodles in Chinatown I might want my bike a little closer.

    I have a google map showing City bike parking locations (its mostly for Leichhardt but I also including City spots ). If any spots are missing please let me know- use comments section for the map. Havent included the rings on smart poles.

    This is a good idea. It should be mandatory for commercial carparks to offer secure bicycle parking (for a fee) at a ratio of 1:50 or 1:100. If the fee is too high then they will have spent money for nothing so the operator should set reasonable prices.
    Are the 100 new bike parking locations on the street or in Council car parks? The trouble with on street parking is that it is too easy for some idiot to damage the bike by knocking it over or similar senseless hooliganism. Plus you really have to remove any lights, pumps, saddlebags, cyclometers and carry them around.
