B’more Awarded Grant for Bike Racks


July 6th, 2012 | Categories: Parking, Programs | Post Comment

The Baltimore Department of Transportation was recently awarded $44,000 from the Baltimore Regional Transportation Board (BRTB) to re-start the city’s free bike rack service.   The BRTB administers Congestion, Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) grants for the Baltimore region and selected the bike rack application in addition to several other applications.

Coming soon, the Department of Transportation will reactivate the “Bike Rack Request” page on the city’s website to make it easier for residents and property owners to request bike racks.  Once the request is received, DOT Maintenance crews will schedule a site evaluation and installation, which typically takes 1 hour.

With a program budget of $55,000, the Department of Transportation wishes to maximize the number of racks on the street while remaining under budget. This project will have three (3) different awards.

Two (2) bicycle rack purchases worth $20,000 each where the bicycle racks are

Another bicycle rack purchase, worth $5,000 will focus on bike corrals (on-street bicycle parking), where the corral is

If you are interested in submitting a quote for consideration, please send a pdf no later than Wednesday, July 25th to Nate Evans. Each quote should be at or below the amounts indicated above and include shipping and handling costs.

No Bike Is Safe!


July 3rd, 2012 | Categories: Stolen Bikes | 4 comments

 No bike is safe from scavenging.  This very old Schwinn Hollywood lost its rear wheel to theft.  

The bike, which is shared among an entire office as a “Zip Bike” to go grab lunch when needed, is usually at 111 Market Place between Lombard/Pratt.  If you know of a spare wheel (or one that miraculously appears), post a reply below.


City Considers Secure Bike Parking Facility


July 2nd, 2012 | Categories: Parking | 1 comment

The City of Baltimore is considering the development of a secure bike parking facility in downtown Baltimore.   A secure bike parking facility is a gated area in which bikes can be parked all day, typically for commuters (like the bike cage at UMB).  This joint project between the Departments of General Services, Transportation and the Parking Authority is seeking public input on concepts for the facility.

If you commute or frequent downtown by bike, please take this quick survey to assist with this project’s development.
