The definition of accessible coherence is proposed. Through local measurement on the other subsystem and one way classical communication, a subsystem can access more coherence than the coherence of its density matrix. Based on the local accessible coherence, the part that can not be locally accessed is also studied, which we call it remaining coherence. We study how the bipartite coherence is distributed by partition for both l1 norm coherence and relative entropy coherence, and the expressions for local accessible coherence and remaining coherence are derived. we also study some examples to illustrate the distribution.
