Japan’s Underground Bicycle Parking System

Bicycles are a popular way to get around in Japan, so parking can be a problem. The Eco Cycle aims to solve that problem by automatically storing and retrieving bicycles out of sight, out of the way, and underground.

The Eco Cycle Bicycle Parking System “Buries” Your Bike Underground

With land values extremely high in Japan, parking bikes underground makes sense. It saves space above ground for pedestrian areas and more high value use.

Since this is Japan, the underground parking garage is built to withstand seismic activity, so your ride may be shaken, but not destroyed.
