Learn about funding for public agencies to help expand the availability of secure bicycle parking in the Bay Area.

Bicycle Racks

This program aims to reduce air pollution in the Bay Area by supporting clean, alternative modes of transportation.

The FYE 2016 cycle closed on June 22, 2016. If you would like to be notified of future developments and solicitations for this program, please sign up to receive email notifications.

For FYE 2016, $3.84 million in Transportation Fund for Clean Air (TFCA) funds are available for Bicycle Facility projects including approximately $840,000 for bicycle parking and $3 million for bikeways. Last fiscal year, nearly $637,000 in TFCA funds were awarded to support the installation of new secure bicycle parking, which resulted in the installation of 2,200 bicycle rack parking spaces and 220 electronic lockers.
