For FYE 2016, $3.84 million in Transportation Fund for Clean Air (TFCA) funds are available for Bicycle Facility projects including approximately $840,000 for bicycle parking and $3 million for bikeways. Last fiscal year, nearly $637,000 in TFCA funds were awarded to support the installation of new secure bicycle parking, which resulted in the installation of 2,200 bicycle rack parking spaces and 220 electronic lockers.
