Improved bike racks soon for Larkspur Ferry and San Rafael TC

Posted: 2009-01-29

The Marin County Board of Supervisors voted to allocate $163,000 from the Non-Motorized Transportation Pilot Program (NTPP) towards two significant bicycle parking projects. These funds are part of the $25M in Federal Funding received by the County to increase the percentage of people walking and bicycling within the County. Marin County is just one of four communities in the country to receive this funding.

The two projects approved are:
•    $140,000 for bicycle parking improvements and racks at the Larkspur Ferry Terminal within the ticketing area. This will help to provide a significant amount of new, secured, covered bike parking.
•    $23,000 for additional bike racks at the Bettini Transit Center in San Rafael, as the current number of racks are almost always full.

Funding for these projects was requested by Golden Gate Transit.
