Bikeable Baltimore Region Project Identifies First Regional Bike Network

Press Releases

BALTIMORE, MD (Tuesday, May 21, 2024) –Baltimore Metropolitan Council (BMC) is working on a project, Bikeable Baltimore Region (BBR), that will identify the first regional bike network. A public comment period will be open from May 21 - July 26, 2024, and will include ten public meetings.

The BBR will identify a regional bike network of existing and planned bike facilities that are safe and comfortable for people of all ages and abilities. This bike network will benefit everyone by connecting our local communities and providing safe and equitable access to places people need to go, such as public transit, schools, work, and parks. This will be the first time a regionally connected bike network has been identified for the Baltimore region.

The Bikeable Baltimore Region (BBR) project will identify the first regional bike network.

This comment period, also known as the listening phase, invites members of the public to share what they like and don’t like about biking in the Baltimore region, their thoughts on the project vision and goals, and what would make a regional bike network a success to them. There will be one more comment period later this year to get people’s feedback on the draft regional bike network and implementation strategy. The final report and interactive website will be released in the summer of 2025.
