Baltimore Sun Reports that the Baltimore Bike Share program is shutting down temporarily, to update the security equipment on its 200 piece fleet of rentable bicycles. The local bike share program opened in 2016, but has weathered a rocky start after a high number of instances of theft, and related damage to locking docks.
