Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake officially launched Baltimore Bike Share which provides transportation on-demand for quick trips around the City.
Baltimore will receive $200,000 annually for three years to support an improved bicycle network in central and west Baltimore through a national grant.
The Boulder, Colo., bike advocacy group PeopleForBikes announced Tuesday that it had choseen Baltimore and nine other cities for its Big Jump Project. The group aims to increase ridership in certain areas over the next three years.
The money is intended to better connect bike routes in communities like Remington, Reservoir Hill, Station North and Hampden. More than a dozen local organizations also pledged $50,000 in matching funds.
In 2016, the city launched a bike-share program and a new cycle track on Maryland Avenue.
