• TAMC’s Bicycle Secure Program Launched

    Bicycle and skateboard riders will soon have more places to park their bikes and skateboards in Monterey County thanks to the Transportation Agency for Monterey County’s Bicycle Secure Program. The program aims to encourage active transportation, and reduce air pollution and traffic congestion by providing free bicycle racks and lockers, skateboard racks, and bicycle repair stations to the public. The Agency is also offering limited financial support for artistic bicycle rack designs.

    Under the program, the Transportation Agency pays the purchasing price of the racks, lockers, and repair stations, including tax and shipping, while applicants are responsible for installing and maintaining the equipment. Applicants proposing an artistic bicycle rack design are also eligible for financial assistance. Businesses, schools, non-profits, and other public agencies in Monterey County are encouraged to apply. Applications are due to the Transportation Agency by March 5, 2015.

    Details about the program, including the application and program guidelines, are available online at http://tamcmonterey.org/programs/bikeped/secure.html
