Transit Marketing Group partners with transit bike rack industry leader Sportworks to spur innovative approaches to mobility and promote excellence in bicycle infrastructure in the urban environment

[Boulder, CO] – Beginning June 27th, Transit Marketing Group and Sportworks Northwest reached an agreement to establish a partnership, combining the strengths of two longtime transit industry leaders with well aligned values.

Sportworks’ Apex 3 rack is a three-position rack that is compact enough to use on a full-sized, cutaway or paratransit bus.

Since 1993, Sportworks has dedicated itself to producing the highest quality transit vehicle bicycle racks on the market, currently supplying these products to over 500 North American municipalities. In addition, in 2011 Sportworks developed the innovative No Scratch® rack, the first bike parking rack with a fully integrated non abrasive bumper that protects bikes. Sportworks transit bicycle racks are proudly designed and fabricated in the U.S. and are Buy America compliant.

“Partnering with Sportworks gives us the unique opportunity to support the marketplace, address challenges of multi modal commuting, and to promote both cycling and public transit. It is with immense excitement that we welcome Sportworks into the Transit Marketing Group family of products.” said Mark Magaldi III, General Manager of Transit Marketing Group.

Eric Rayl, President of Sportworks Northwest, added “For 25 years, we’ve been the thought leaders in multi modal urban transit infrastructure. Our commitment to cycling as a means of transportation is as strong as our commitment to excellence in quality, delivery, and service. Partnering with Transit Marketing Group is an opportunity to serve our transit agency and vehicle manufacturer customers at an even higher level, while continuing to provide bicycle racks with the best reliability and lowest cost of ownership in the industry.”
