Bicycling & Walking Homepage

 Welcome! This website serves as a 'warehouse' or 'jumping-off point' for all things related to Bike & Pedestrian information that is administered in some capacity by the State of Maryland's Department of Transportation (MDOT). We encourage you to explore the various ways in which MDOT is helping to administer and disseminate information for biking & walking throughout our state

What's New? What's currently got our attention?

The Baltimore Metropolitan Council and Maryland Department of Transportation Motor Vehicle Administration Highway Safety Office (MDOT MVA MHSO) teamed up with local partners to launch the Look Alive Campaign in June to raise awareness of pedestrian and bicycle safety and educate drivers, pedestrians, and bicyclists about safe use of roadways in the greater Baltimore region.

A new documentary and multimedia initiative that explores one of Maryland's (and America's!) most treasured biking destinations - The Great Allegheny Passage - is out now! Check it out here.
