Chicago Street Seats and Bike Share Station Integration?

An area that NACTO could easily add in the Manual is the considerations surrounding placement of bikeshare stations and the development of a Street Seats program. I wasn't particularly planning to study this, but during our time on the streets a couple of examples really made me notice how well these two elements if properly integrated could make a transportation hub for a neighborhood business district.

Limited remaining sidewalk, but well implemented

This barrier is beautiful, but doesn't leave a clear path
