(a) All required bicycle parking on the lot shall be located along an accessible route as defined by the Philadelphia Building Code. Accessible routes shall be provided between the required on-lot bicycle parking and any public bicycle lanes, paths, or routes on adjacent streets.
(b) Bicycle racks may be placed in the public right-of-way to achieve the required number of spaces under this subsection, provided that the building owner enters into a maintenance agreement with the Streets Department and an approval for the installation is obtained from the Streets Department prior to the issuance of any required zoning permit. No additional encroachment ordinance shall be required.
(c) All required bicycle parking spaces outside a building shall be located within a 50 ft. radius of the primary building entrance except in the following circumstances:
(.1) When bicycle parking spaces are to be located on the lot outside a building, L&I may modify or waive this requirement if it would cause a conflict with any other code provision, but all required spaces shall be located as close to the primary building entrance as site conditions allow.
(.2) When bicycle parking spaces are to be located in the public right-of-way, the Department of Streets may modify or waive this requirement if it would result in excessive sidewalk clutter, impede pedestrian circulation, or cause a conflict with any other code or regulation, but all required spaces shall have convenient access to building entrances that are typically open to intended users.
(.3) Bicycle parking spaces located in attended parking facilities shall be located next to the attendant booth or within an area under regular surveillance.
