Biking to work improves air quality, reduces gas costs and commuting stress, and improves fitness. Before biking to work for the first time, cyclists should tune up their bikes, map their routes, check connections needed for transit connections, and make a trial run.
MARC and Commuter Bus riders can bike to any of the County's four MARC stations or any Park and Ride facility and use the bike racks provided to secure their bikes. Bikes can also be brought onboard any MARC Train. More information is available on the MDOT MTA website: Bicycles on MDOT MTA. Riders can bike to a Transit bus stop, place their bike onto the rack onboard, and ride Transit to their destination.
