What the hell is the high tech bike parking garage? Let’s watch the movie.



As this movie, the system is that the bicycle set on certain position goes down to the underground parking garage when you push the button. If you hold up the dedicated card to the display, you can get your bike back.

This is called Eco Cycle mechanical driven system for parking bikes presented by Giken Co., Ltd. This system has been set up in the bicycle parking lot of Kohchi engineering college for its students from 1998, and now available areas are expanding. Altogether with similar system of Eco Park, there are 50 parking in 20 areas all over the Japan.

It can accommodate 204 bikes for one Eco Cycle.

By the way, the system for car parking accommodates 50 vehicles.



The operating is very easy for everyone. As the official movie explains, this system scans the IC card installed on a bike, and then it conveys it to the closed space under the ground. All these process are controlled by IC card, and you don’t have to worry about theft, mischief and damages by bad weather of your bike. It takes 13 seconds in average for bicycles and 25 seconds in average for cars to entering and leaving the underground garage.

Eco Cycle doesn’t occupy much space, and the booth of entrance can be designed freely without spoiling the scenery. Plus, some of this parking is available for charging power-assisted bicycles service.
