Bicycling and Walking

Congratulations to OMC! We were selected by the EBBC as the 2013 Bike-Friendly Business Award winner in the large employer category!

Bicycling and Walking

Bicycling and walking are fun and health ways to get to work. You can get a workout in before and after work, so you can have more time once you're home.

Park your bicycle in one of Oakland Medical Center's secure bicycle facilities:

  • Bicycle cage located on the first floor of the Howe Street parking garage at 3800 Howe Street
  • Bicycle room located in the BMOB at 3751 Broadway
  • Bicycle cage located in the new garage at 3510 Broadway
  • A bicycle rack is located in the Mosswood garage

OMC employees can register at the Transportation office (in the Howe Street garage) to receive access to bicycle facilities.

Visitor and Member bicycle parking There is a bicycle rack for members and visitors in front of the Fabiola Building, in the BMOB (3751 Broadway) garage, in the member bicycle cage in the hospital garage (3510 Broadway), and in the rack in front of the Mosswood building.
