Bicycle & Pedestrian Resources in Your Community

The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) partners with communities and groups in local bicycle and pedestrian networks around the State. Maryland accommodates alternative modes of transportation, such as walking and bicycling. In recent years, more attention has been given to walking and bicycling as forms of commuting to promote a more sustainable lifestyle.
