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.
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.
