STOCKHOLM — When it's built, the newest parking garage in Stockholm won't hold any cars at all. It's designed to hold 700 bikes instead, according to a Co.Exist post.

"The city of the future is not one built around the car as a means of transportation," says Roger Mogert, city planning commissioner for Stockholm, the report said.

The garage, near a major train station, is being designed from the ground up for cyclists. Design elements will include entrances that will automatically slide open, so cyclists can ride in directly from the adjacent bike path or street; a bike repair shop and changing rooms where commuters can shower, dress for work, and leave their helmets in lockers, Co.Exist reported.
