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
