Parking Corrals for Dockless Vehicles 

388

The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) has announced a plan to install 100 off-sidewalk dockless scooter and bike parking corrals over the next several months. DDOT will locate the corrals in the area between stop signs and the start of the parking zone, ensuring that illegally parked cars do not block visibility of crosswalks and intersections. The off-sidewalk corrals were first piloted in business improvement districts and commercial areas where higher numbers of dockless vehicles were expected to be parked. The new locations focus on residential areas where sidewalks are narrower and more likely to be blocked by an improperly parked dockless vehicle, based on feedback DDOT received from residents. A map of installed and planned off-sidewalk parking corrals is available at ddot.dc.gov/page/bike-and-scooter-corrals.
