Bike Parking Facility

The University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) is committed to being a bike-friendly campus with enhanced alternative transportation and mobility options.

Bike racks are integral to helping individuals switch their commuting practices to more active modes such as walking or cycling. Given the costs associated with adding more parking spaces for automobiles, and as a downtown campus with limited space to grow, UMB should explore ways to begin improving and adding bike racks to the campus’ infrastructure.

Bike racks are located throughout campus at most of the schools, garages, and the University Maryland Medical Center. Listed below are locations of bike racks and bike fix-it stations presently on campus.
