At the heart of the plan, is a zoning requirement mandating increased parking for bicycles at home and at work: virtually all new buildings will be obligated to provide storage. The ultimate goal is “doubling bicycle commuting by 2015 and tripling it by 2020,” according to the Department of City Planning.
