Bike Share Offers UMB Healthy Transit Options

Baltimore’s new bike sharing program has rolled into the Westside, making pedal power a possibility for users who want a one-time trip or prefer a monthly pass.

Representatives of the city’s program, Baltimore Bike Share, and its operator held a “lunch-and learn” session on Nov. 21 at the University of Maryland BioPark, which is the site of one of several stations accessible to students, faculty, and staff of the University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB).

That station has 16 bikes located on a parking lot at 829 W. Baltimore St., which is opposite UMB’s Community Engagement Center and the Maryland Proton Treatment Center, and links with other stations on the Westside including Hollins Market.

A 16-port bike docking station has been installed at the southwest corner of Baltimore and Greene streets, underneath the pedestrian bridge, thanks to a partnership between UMB and the University of Maryland Medical Center (UMMC). That site is also convenient to users from the Baltimore Veterans Affairs Medical Center.
