Maryland Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee 

The present-day Maryland Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee (MBPAC) was formed in December 1991 as the Bicycle Advisory Committee (Chapter 624, Acts of 1991). In July 2000, the Committee became the Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee (Chapter 670, Acts of 2000). The Committee advises State government agencies on issues directly related to bicycling and pedestrian activity including funding, public awareness, safety and education (Code Transportation Article, sec. 2-606).

The twenty-two member committee is appointed by the Governor, combining the experience of citizens with the expertise of representatives from nine State agencies (Chapter 443, Acts of 2009). Committee members represent geographical regions throughout the State and specific interests, including those of visually and mobility impaired individuals.

Focus Areas

MBPAC has three focus areas for promoting bicycle and pedestrian activities:
1. Mode of Transportation  –  Promotes non-motorized modes as healthy, efficient, and environmentally-friendly ways to travel for work and  for fun. 
2. Education and Awareness – Promotes activities, programs and policies that foster bicycle and pedestrian safety education across all age groups; also promotes greater awareness of the mission and work of the MBPAC.
3. Tourism & Recreation –  Promoting and protecting Maryland's off-road trail system while supporting Maryland State agencies,  and providing guidance on program strategies that promote Maryland's trails and tourism resources.
