Bike Racks on Buses
Providing bicycle racks on shuttles is a great incentive and convenient offering for passengers wishing to transport their bicycle while riding the bus. Healthy for you AND healthy for the environment!
Currently one of UMBC Transit’s shuttles is committed to fuel supplied by the UMBC Bio-Diesel student organization.

Charging Stations for electric cars
Facilities Maintenance installed and maintains two electric vehicle charging stations located in the Stadium Parking Lot just west of the UMBC Transit Office (Warehouse). The charging station is free to all campus visitors and the UMBC campus community. No special arrangement is necessary for their use – just plug in and charge up.
Funding for the charging stations was supplied by the Baltimore Electric Vehicle Initiative (BEVI). BEVI is a partner of the non-profit organization, International Center for Sustainable Development. They work to reduce carbon emissions by implementing smart grid infrastructure for the City of Baltimore and Department of Energy.
