City of Utrecht Bicycle parking

Utrecht gives priority to cyclists and pedestrians, and makes bicycle parking easy. To this end, every first day of parking is free of charge in all municipal bicycle parkings. The municipality and partners are always looking for smart ways to facilitate cyclists.

One of these smart ways is the 'P-route bicycle'. Utrecht is the first city in the world where digital signs are used to guide cyclists to free parking spaces. Utrecht also deploys Pop-Up Parkings at busy moments and at special events.

Some 22,000 high-quality bicycle parking places are realised at the largest public-transport hub in the Netherlands. In the new Utrecht Central Station area, near the public-transport terminal, these parking places will be divided over five large bicycle parkings located on the Jaarbeurs side and the side of the city centre, where cyclists park their bicycles at top locations close to the station entrances.
