The City's Bicycle Parking Program is supported by Alameda County Measure B sales taxes and grants from the Bay Area Air Quality Management District Transportation Fund for Clean Air.

In 2013 the City of Berkeley received an allocation of $150,000 from the Transportation Fund for Clean Air (TFCA) from the Bay Area Air Quality Management District.  This funding is for the installation of bike racks and six new in-street "bike corral" high capacity bike parking areas (locations TBD) during 2014 and 2015.  Following this next round of installations, the City is planning a second allocation of $180,000 from TFCA for more bike racks and 12 additional bike corrals in a subsequent construction project.
