Due to the high demand for secure parking spaces in the area of the train station / ZOH / ZOB mobility hub, the offer is to be expanded. This makes the networking of the different modes of transport even more attractive: A safe parking space near the train station for high-quality bicycles such as pedelecs and e-bikes, but also for commuters and short-term users / day tourists with luggage, is an important and priority objective. This is confirmed in the second Effectiveness control of the state of Baden-Württemberg on bicycle traffic 2014/2015 and in the climate tests of the ADFC.

There are plans to build bicycle boxes and a bicycle garage in the area in front of the station. The bike boxes are stacked.The advantage of having two boxes on top of each other is the reduced space requirement compared to single-story variants. Double-decker parkers are also provided in the collective garage. A total of 56 storage spaces can be created.Access is controlled via an app. The bicycle boxes are equipped with electrical connections for the pedelecs. In addition to this project, roofed leaning brackets will be installed on the platform on platform 1 as part of the platform elevation.Thus, the entire range of bicycle parking options is available.
