According to flyers at Penn Station, new bike parking is coming next week. The new bike parking zone will be established within the current parking area for the disabled to the east of Penn Station’s main entrance. Only 3 parking spaces will be converted to bike parking, but with high density COVERED racks, more bikes can be parked there. These new racks were purchased by the Maryland Transit Administration through a grant from the Maryland Department of Transportation’s Bikeways Program.
One rack from the plaza will be relocated there as well. All bike parking on the plaza (by the Man/Woman statue) will be removed shortly thereafter as part of the plaza redevelopment plan. All new racks will be in place before the older racks are removed. Please plan your parking accordingly.
The bike parking at the garage entrance will also experience an upgrade. The bike rack against the guard house will remain in place while the other racks will be replaced. These racks will be upgraded to high-density covered racks as well. Similar improvements will take place at Camden Station within the coming weeks.
