Motorcycle & Bike Parking

Park Cedar Rapids has several options available for motorcycle and bicycle parking.

  • Bicycle Parking: The Cedar Rapids Downtown District has installed several bicycle racks throughout the downtown area that are all free for public use. There are additional bike racks located inside 3rd Avenue parking ramp, directly in front of the Park Cedar Rapids Command Center booth. Bike parking in the 3rd Avenue ramp is especially secure because of the close proximity to the staffed booth.
  • Motorcycle Parking: Motorcycles can utilize any on-street vehicle space in downtown. Any metered spaces will require payment at the rate designated for the area. Additional motorcycle parking spaces have been created on-street, along 1st Street SE, and in the 3rd Avenue, 4th Avenue, Five Seasons and Ground Transportation Center (GTC) parking ramps.

Meter Placards

Downtown Cedar Rapids experiences many exciting events throughout the year. Sometimes these events require specific "No Parking" regulations be enforced. Individual meters will be attached with poster size placards indicating specific time requirements. Placards are in place at minimum 12 hours in advance of the event. It is imperative that the time requirement be observed. Failure to observe posted signs can result in towing at the owner’s expense.
