Baltimore Bike Share has been around less than a year, but you may have noticed fewer and fewer bikes around town. 

The city said this is intentional and it's working to fix problems with the bikes. 

Starting Sunday, Sept. 17, the Bike Share will temporarily shutdown for maintenance and equipment upgrades.

Upgraded security features will be incorporated this month as a response to isolated thefts over the summer.

The shutdown also allows the city to prepare for phase two, where new stations are expected to pop up. The city says it will continue to update riders on planned improvements and promotions in the coming weeks.

The Bike Share program is expected to resume on Oct. 15
