Cities in the Netherlands have encouraged cycling in order to create a more healthy, liveable and sustainable environment. Accordingly, cycling has become an important travel mode in cities for both unimodal and multimodal travel. Consequently, the increase of bicycle use results in an increase in the demand for bicycle parking, thus encouraging illegal bicycle in station areas where supply is unable to meet demand. As space becomes scarce in these areas, managing the existing parking supply becomes crucial in the urban environment. This research attempts to explain bicycle parking behavior by finding determinants for parking near a station with a metro service, train service or both services at the same location. The results not only show that the determinants for parking in these station areas differ, but also that each station areas attracts different groups of people.
