The California Senate could hold its first hearing on the Bike Parking Bill (AB 3153-Rivas) as early as August 1, 2020. The bill provides an incentive to build long-term bike parking and car-sharing spaces in new buildings. 

In most communities in California, housing developers are required to include lots of car parking but no bike parking. That’s bad for the residents who want to live more sustainably or use their bike for transportation. 

We can change that for thousands of buildings across the state if AB 3153 passes. Modeled on existing ordinances in some cities, it provides a powerful incentive for developers to do the right thing.
