SRPEDD Regional Bicycle Parking Program now available; public info sessions to be held at two locations

Information sessions to be held at Taunton Public and Southworth Libraries

SRPEDD is pleased to announce that the Regional Bicycle Parking Program is now available. We will be holding two public information sessions to launch the program, distribute required forms and to answer any questions. These public information sessions will be held at the following locations and dates:

  • Tuesday February 18, 2014 – 4 pm at the Taunton Public Library, 12 Pleasant Street, Taunton MA
  • Wednesday February 19, 2014 – 4 pm at the Southworth Library, 732 Dartmouth Street, Dartmouth, MA

These locations are is accessible to people with disabilities and are on a public transit route. Upon request, every effort will be made to provide accommodation or language assistance. Please contact SRPEDD’s Title VI Coordinator by phone (508 824-1367), fax (508 823-1803), or by email lcabral@srpedd.org. Requests should be made as soon as possible prior to the meeting.

This program, funded through the Federal Highway Administration’s Congestion Mitigation/Air Quality Program (CMAQ) allows eligible parties to purchase bicycle securing devices from designated vendors at a discount and be reimbursed by SRPEDD for the cost of the racks. The Greater Attleboro Taunton Regional Transit Authority (GATRA) and the Southeastern Regional Transit Authority (SRTA) are eligible to purchase bike racks from the designated vendors at the discounted rates, but these entities, however, are not eligible for reimbursement.

Two vendors were selected for the program, SARIS Cycling Group and Highland Products Group, LLC. For program guidelines, forms, catalogs and price lists, please visit www.srpedd.org/bike-parking.

Communities must register with SRPEDD, submit proposals for approval, order racks from the chosen vendors, install the racks and then submit for reimbursement for the cost of the racks only from SRPEDD. SRPEDD has developed a list of eligible locations where bike racks may be installed. Installation of bike racks MUST follow these guidelines in order to be eligible for reimbursement. Regardless of location, all racks MUST be installed on public property. Order proposals must be submitted by individuals authorized to contract on behalf of the city, town or agency.

Please feel free to contact Jacqueline Schmidt at jschmidt@srpedd.org or 508-824-1367 with any questions regarding the program.
