Park it in a box!

Friday, February 15, 2019 by Tai Moses

Getting tired of seeing scooters tossed across the sidewalk, perched on flower beds or blocking doorways? The city’s Transportation Department has come up with a solution – parking boxes for dockless mobility devices like bicycles and scooters. The city hopes the boxes will encourage riders to be more mindful about where they leave their scooters and bicycles. Early birds can watch Transportation staff install a parking box Friday, Feb. 15, at 9 a.m. at 221 W. Sixth St. Off-street parking boxes can be found in the following locations:

  • Third Street between Nueces Street and San Antonio Street
  • Fourth Street at San Jacinto Boulevard
  • San Jacinto Boulevard between Fifth Street and Sixth Street
  • Third Street at Trinity Street
  • Fourth Street at Red River Street
  • Fifth Street at Pleasant Valley
