Calling all Baltimore bicyclists!!
The Parking Authority of Baltimore City (PABC) is looking to decrease parking demand, especially in the central business district. To encourage bicycling, the PABC is willing to invest in safe, secure, indoor bicycle parking but need to identify about 30 bicyclists who would be interested.
For $10 a month, PABC would provide an access card to a secured area on the first floor of the Baltimore Street garage (15 Guilford Avenue) inside which bicyclists could lock their bikes to a rack. What we envision is similar to NYC�s Penn Station as pictured below:

We would love to make this a reality to help encourage bicycling in Baltimore City, thereby reducing the parking demand, especially downtown! Please feel free to spread the word!
Please note the following counts as being interested so please let us know if you have similar or greater interest in the bike parking garage.
Actual secured parking with easy access to the Harbor for the rare occasions when I want to do something there would be worth $10/month no problem
