Bicycle parking

A good bike rack is important, because it allows the cyclists to park properly and avoid bike theft. The City also has bike boxes for local residents.

Bicycle racks

The City of Brussels opted for a U-model hanging down. Several hundreds of them were installed, mainly in the city centre. The City wants to replace all the older bike racks by this new type.

The demand for the placement of such a rack can be made by e-mail:

Bicycle boxes

The City of Brussels has bicycle boxes on its territory. A bicycle box is a box with key access that can accommodate 5 bikes from local residents.

The rent for a place costs 60 euro per year.


The places in the bicycle boxes are distributed taking into account a number of criteria:

  • being domiciled at the City of Brussels
  • 1 place per family in the bike box
  • not having a place for a bicycle in the apartment building
  • living less than 200 meters from the box
