Commuter Services’ new online tool provides information on more than
120 bike rack locations in Central PA
YORK, Pa. (May 20, 2014) – Commuter Services launched its new, interactive Regional Bike Rack Map on its website today at pacommuterservices.org/bike-rack-map. The electronic map provides bicyclists with information and locations of more than 120 bike racks throughout the Commuter Services nine-county region.
Bicyclists can quickly obtain directions and view photos and site descriptions of each rack, making it easier to find parking while they commute through the area. The map is an ongoing project and will continue to grow with additional rack locations. To view the Bike Rack Map, visit pacommuterservices.org/bike-rack-map.
“We’re excited to unveil the first phase of the Regional Bike Rack Map,” said Matt Boyer, Executive Director of Commuter Services of Pennsylvania. “As we develop new programs at Commuter Services, we consistently look for ways to assist commuters who make the smart choice to get out of a single occupancy vehicle and utilize an alternative mode of transportation such as bicycling, walking, carpooling, vanpooling or teleworking. This new map is a great step towards helping bicycle commuters and recreational bike riders find bike rack locations across the region.”
In addition to the new Bike Rack Map, Commuter Services also provides a similar interactive Park and Ride Map for carpools and transit, visit pacommuterservices.org/park-ride-map to learn more.
Commuter Services works with employers and commuters to encourage a variety of commuting options including biking, taking transit, carpooling, walking, vanpooling or telecommuting. Using alternative transportation results in fewer cars on the roadways, improved air quality and reduced traffic congestion and travel time.
