The City of New Haven debuted its first parking corral on September 19. According to the New Haven Independent, the corral consists of 16 parking spots for bicycles.
The rack is located on College Street near Chapel. According to the article, the idea for the bike corral came from Zack Beatty of SeeClickFix. He launched a campaign to raise money to bring a large bike rack to New Haven. And he found he got support from individuals, Elm City Cycling and the City of New Haven.
The rack only takes up one car parking space, and will accommodate up to 16 bicycles. The bike corral will stay up until the winter to accommodate city snow plows, however it will be back up in the spring.
