Portable Bike Corral Design Competition Information Session

YBCBD and SF Planning’s Pavement to Parks and partners are sponsoring a student competition to design a portable on-street bike corral that is easily deployed in the parking lane when needed. This concept blends the traditional on-street bike corral idea with mobile openspace infrastructure like the Parkmobiles which are deployed throughout downtown San Francisco. Winning teams will receive a cash prize and the opportunity to work with a professional firm to fabricate a prototype. All team entries will be presented at an exhibition at the San Francisco Planning and Research Association (SPUR).
