Greenbelt Wins Grant for Bike Feasibility Study

Greenbelt's study will determine potential bikeshare stations.


Gov. Martin O'Malley kicked off bike month by announcing seven winners of his new Maryland Bikeshare Program grants, and Greenbelt was among them, according to Baltimore Bike Community Blog.

O'Malley got the word out on Wednesday that Greenbelt received a grant for a feasibility study as part of a joint project with Prince George's County to determine potential bikeshare stations, according to the blog.

The next step is for Greenbelt and the Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT) to sign a memorandum of understanding followed by a formal award of the funding. The study could begin any time after July 1, with an expected completion date in about a year, the blog reports.

Receiving this grant is the first step in Greenbelt's continued effort to expand transportation opportunities for the community. In addition to this grant, the development agreement for Greenbelt Station includes developer funding for a bike share station. This grant application was prepared by Community Planner Jaime Fearer as her first major assignment upon joining the Department of Planning and Community Development. If you want more information about this grant and bikeshare, contact Ms. Fearer at jfearer@greenbeltmd.gov or at 240-542-2042.
