Bikesharing Station Site Identification Program Earns Award

For the second straight year, the County has received a 2013-2014 Technology Solutions Award from the Public Technology Institute (PTI) for its “Bikeshare Station Site Identification and Property Verification” program. The award was presented in the Energy/Environment Technology category

The award-winning program allows Department of Transportation staff to collaborate with organizations outside of County government to research and identify potential bikeshare station locations in the County.

Once again, Montgomery was the only county in Maryland -- and the only Washington, DC metropolitan area jurisdiction -- to be recognized as an award winner by PTI in its annual technology solutions awards competition.
