Who We Are

The Baltimore Metropolitan Council (BMC) is a group of trusted experts who help guide the future of the Baltimore region. We evaluate needs and trends, listen to communities, and develop and implement programs and projects. BMC’s Board of Directors governs the agency and sets our policy agenda. BMC’s staff convenes elected officials, state and local agency specialists, and regional leaders to advance shared priorities in transportation, housing, workforce development, emergency management and more. Through our work, we are committed to making our communities livable, accessible and prosperous for all.

BMC works with member jurisdictions and state agencies to promote biking as an equitable and safe alternative to motor vehicle travel to access jobs, goods and services. Biking and walking contribute to individual health, help ease traffic congestion, and reduce emissions that result in air pollution.

Improve bicycle safety awareness

Promotion of Bike to Work Week helps raise awareness of the rules of the road for drivers, pedestrians, and cyclists, and also highlights the need for continued expansion of safe and comfortable sidewalks, bike lanes, shared-use paths and safe crossings.

Improve transportation equity
