Downtown Partnership of Baltimore is providing $10,000 to subsidize new monthly Bike Share passes to enable low-income residents better access to a convenient and healthy way of getting around town. Baltimore Bike Share recently announced the donation.

"Bike Share is already an important part of Baltimore's transit infrastructure and thanks to the generosity of Downtown Partnership and the new Access Pass, it will be more affordable and easily available," Mayor Catherine Pugh said in a statement. "If other organizations follow Downtown Partnership's lead, we will be able to expand the program to more individuals and provide how-to-ride classes."

There are various opportunities for businesses and community groups to align themselves with Baltimore Bike Share as it grows and gains new riders, according to Jon Laria, a partner at the law firm of Ballad Spahr and chair of the mayor's Bicycle Advisory Commission.
