Find a Place to Park Your Bike with the RTC Bike Rack App

Finding a bike rack to secure your bike can sometimes be a challenge – but now RTC has an app for that!  The app allows bicyclists to tell each other where to find racks.  It also enables them to tell planners where they think racks ought to be located in the community.
