Decorative Bike Rack Program
Business Improvement Districts (BIDs), Neighborhood Improvement Districts (NIDs), and other neighborhood organizations in Milwaukee can request decorative bike racks with their own unique designs. U-racks with both circular plates (photo pictured below) and horizontal crossbars (digital mockup pictured below) are available. The designs can be in color or black and white and are printed onto heavy-duty vinyl labels and applied to the racks. The first decorative bike racks with Milwaukee-themed labels can be found around Downtown Milwaukee.

The City provides the racks at no cost, while the organization pays for the cost of the labels and the labor needed to install the racks. Costs will vary depending on the number and type of racks ordered and may range from approximately $75 to $175 per rack. Decorative bike racks cannot be requested by individual businesses.
