For Immediate Release: Friday, December 1, 2017

The Montgomery County Department of Transportation (MCDOT) has received a Bikeways Grant Award from the Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT) Maryland Bikeways Program to install four bikeshare stations along the Bethesda Trolley Trail. The award of $269,834 will fund final design, purchase and installation of the stations that will connect existing bikeshare in Bethesda with new grant- funded stations to be installed in White Flint and Twinbrook in the spring of 2018.

This is the MCDOT’s third Bikeways Grant Award. The first grant was used to create a Wheaton Bikeshare network and the second grant will be used for the White Flint and Twinbrook stations.

In addition, a grant using funds from Maryland’s Transportation Alternatives Program was awarded to MCDOT’s Safe Routes to School program by the National Capital Region Transportation Planning Board. MCDOT received $46,840 for pedestrian and traffic safety enforcement and education at targeted schools.
