Bikesharing Program Receives National Award

The Public Technology Institute (PTI) has honored Montgomery County with a 2013-2014 Technology Solutions Award for its “Bikeshare Station Site Identification and Property Verification” program, recognized as a winner in the Energy/Environment Technology award category. Department of Transportation (MCDOT) staff have used the system to collaborate with organizations outside of County government to research and identify potential bikeshare station locations.

For the second consecutive year, Montgomery was the only county in Maryland - and the only jurisdiction in the Washington DC metropolitan area - to be recognized with an award by PTI in its annual technology solutions awards competition.
