Employee end-of-trip facilities for active transport are now a standard requirement for development in most cities. Over the last ten or so years the bicycle parking provided has changed, improving efficient use of space and ease of use. But are the bicycle parking facilities typically used for employee parking ready for the rapidly evolving needs of users? Do they cater for commuter bicycles with panniers and mud guards, electric bicycles and scooters, cargo-bicycles and trailers? This paper reviews several examples of employee end of trip facilities and bicycle parking in Brisbane, provides a professional critique of the successes and challenges of the bicycle parking provided, and identifies how changes in bicycle design and technology needs to be considered in designing employee end-of-trip facilities.
