Bicycle Secure Program

The Bicycle Secure Program continues the Agency’s public mandate to, among other things, work to achieve a coordinated and balanced regional transportation system by promoting active transportation. By providing secure bicycle parking, businesses and agencies can attract more bicycle-riding patrons and support bicycle commuting employees. Providing secure parking supports the growing number of people who choose to bicycle for economic, health, and environmental reasons. In addition to bicycle racks, the program also includes bicycle shelters, bicycle repair stations, skateboard racks, and funding for artistic bicycle racks.

As of July 2020, the Bicycle Secure Program operates as an on-going, rolling grant program. Applications are accepted year-round and will continue to be, until the budget has expended. Under the ongoing program, the budget will reset at the beginning of each fiscal year (July 1st through June 30th), dependent upon the adopted Agency budget.

Specific goals of the Bicycle Secure Program include:

  • Increasing the amount of secure bicycle parking in Monterey County giving high priority to locations without existing bicycle parking.
  • Ensuring equitable distribution of bicycle parking facilities across Monterey County.
  • Providing bicycle parking in convenient locations to encourage bicycling.
  • Supporting artistic design of facilities that increase visibility of bicycle parking and maintain the character of a special area or district.
