By Greg Hinchliffe, Review of Recent MBPAC Meeting
Category: Social
Forum: Advocacy

On Thursday April 10, 2014, members of Maryland Bicylcle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee (MBPAC) had a very productive meeting with Maryland Transit Authority (MTA) personnel regarding carrying full-size (non-folding) bikes on Maryland Area Regional Commuter (MARC) trains. Representing MTA were Erich Kolig, John Hovatter, and Patrick McMahon. Representing MBPAC was Michael Jackson, Greg Hinchliffe, Jim Titus and Carol Silldorff, committee member and Bike Maryland Executive Director. Also in attendance was Champe Burnley of the Virginia Bicycle Federation, who is conducting similar negotiations with Virginia Railway Express commuter rail and Amtrak.

MBPAC passed a resolution asking MARC to consider allowing non–folding bikes on its new weekend service trains, with the idea that the new service would be lightly patronized. MARC was expecting approximately 2000 weekend users; they have had as many as 9000! Nonetheless, the weekend ridership is lower than weekday, making the weekend trains the logical choice to experiment with bike carriage.

MTA has put quite a bit of thought and effort into incorporating space for full bicycles on the MARC. MBPAC members are satisfied that MTA is working on a solution, and hopeful that progress can be reported soon. Additionally, we thank MTA for there interest in partnering with advocates to participate in later stages of this project’s development.

Thank you to Greg Hinchliffe for contributing this article!

The Land Preservation and Recreation Plan is prepared every five years to identify essential and contemporary issues impacting outdoor recreation and natural resource protection in Maryland. This Plan was developed using public input gathered through surveys, stakeholder meetings and thorough analysis of national, state and local issues impacting recreation and natural resource conservation.

Bike Maryland’s Executive Director, Carol Silldorff, a member of the Department of Natural Resources Trail Committee, thanks the committee members and Steve Carr, Department of Natural Resources Trails Planner, for their commitment to making access to bicycling a priority! We also thank everyone who participated in the recreation surveys.

Final approval of the Land Preservation Recreation Plan from the National Park Service has been received.

Please attend on Monday to speak out for pedestrian and bicycle access across the Susquehanna:

Crucial Public Meeting Monday, April 28, in Havre de Grace, Maryland
Where the Susquehanna River meets the Chesapeake Bay, it cuts a scenic gorge, lined with parks and historic small towns.

Unfortunately, it also cuts bicycle and pedestrian access from Maryland to Delaware and eastern Pennsylvania — and creates a critical gap in the East Coast Greenway.

There are four bridges from Havre de Grace, Maryland, across to the northeastern corner of Maryland, where it meets Delaware and Pennsylvania. None of these bridges allows bicycle or pedestrian traffic. To cross the Susquehanna under your own power, you must travel 23 miles upstream, into Pennsylvania.

We have an opportunity to change that, and get bicycle and pedestrian access to the Amtrak’s 100-year old Susquehanna River Bridge. The Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT) has been awarded $22 million to design this bridge’s replacement.

The next opportunity to speak out is this Monday, April 28. MDOT is holding a public information session at the Havre de Grace Activity Center (351 Lewis Lane, Havre de Grace, Md. 21078). The community is invited to attend the fully accessible open house anytime between 5 and 8 p.m. to meet the project team, learn about the project, ask questions and provide feedback.

We need you to speak out for bicycle and pedestrian access at this meeting.
