New Baltimore Bike Share Station Added to Fort Avenue in Riverside

| January 31, 2018 | 0 Comments

A new Baltimore Bike Share station was added last week to the northwest corner of E. Fort Ave. and Webster St. adjacent to Koba Cafe. The station has 12 bike docking stations and replaces approximately two on-street parking spaces.

There are now five stations on the South Baltimore Peninsula with a total of 57 bike docks. The four other stations are at Cross Street Market, Ostend St. and Light St., and S. Charles St. and Fort Ave. in Federal Hill; and McHenry Row in Locust Point. No additional stations are planned at this time for the peninsula.

Other stations in South Baltimore include Camden Yards, Baltimore Visitor Center at the Inner Harbor, University of Maryland BioPark, and Hollins Market. Two stations are planned for Pigtown.

Baltimore Bike Share was shut down for a month this fall due to widespread thefts. New locking systems were designed and installed for the stations and the bikes received upgraded GPS systems.

Baltimore Bike Share is locally run by by Corp Logistics in Westport. The veteran-owned company works with a team of veterans, including formerly homeless veterans in partnership with The Baltimore Station. Corps Logistics is a subcontractor of Quebec’s Bewegen Technologies.
