2017: Free bike racks, lockers, repair stations, or skateboard/scooter racks


Wish there was a free bike repair station near you? People in many Monterey County communities—such as the North Monterey County community of Pajaro (pictured above) and South County / Salinas Valley communities such as Greenfield (directly below) —have no bike repair shop or mobile bike repair service in their vicinity.
Transportation Agency for Monterey County (TAMC) has a solution that can help:
a free bike repair/maintenance station.
These communities and other Monterey County locations also need suitable parking, places where people whose transportation is a bicycle, skateboard, or scooter can lock up their steed.
 TAMC is able to provide some free parking solutions for these active transportation users too—
free bike racks and lockers, as well as skateboard/scooter racks.

Who qualifies to receive these? Private businesses, local jurisdictions (e.g., local cities), school districts, and other public agencies in Monterey County.

TAMC is able to consider requests for these free items as part of its three-year (2015-2017) “bicycle secure program.” In 2017, the grant application period closed on Feb 2, 2017 with an approximately $10,000 reserve still available for such equipment—as advised on page 16 of the March 1, 2017 bike-ped committee meeting packet.

This reserve allows TAMC to consider more requests for the free repair stations or parking options. TAMC will consider requests on a case by case basis.

Contact Grant Leonard at TAMC for details; phone (831) 775-4402 or email grant@tamcmonterey.org.
