The city of Baltimore has implemented a Bicycle Master Plan. The plan sets out the vision of making significant improvements in providing access to safe and user-friendly bicycling facilities over the course of 15 years. From 2005-2015, with dedicated funding, more than 100 miles of bicycle facilities have been installed in the city already. There is a full-time Bike Planner on staff at Baltimore’s Department of Transportation; but improvements are still necessary.
The Bicycle Master Plan proposes to increase bicycle infrastructure and better integrate bicycle facilities within the roadway network to improve safety for bicyclists and help attract more people to choose biking. The plan calls for an increase in bicycle infrastructure and amenities, such as bike racks and bike share be incorporated in development and re-development projects, and that they be promoted even for established developments.
