Join a public celebration with Assembly Member Nancy Skinner

Location: AC Transit, 1600 Franklin, Oakland

What: Test prototype triple bicycle capacity bus rack

Adding a third bike to the front of a bus is not an easy accomplishment in California. Thanks to legislation by Assembly Member Skinner signed into law in 2009, we can add a few inches to buses to accommodate an extra bicycle.

Federal legislation could doom bike access on public transit

When EBBC sought regulatory relief to allow 3 bikes per bike rack on buses, advocates had to travel no farther than Sacramento. But if the Obama Administrations gets its way, EBBC advocates will have to start traveling cross-country to deal with Washington, DC bureaucrats.

That is because Transportation Secretary Ray La Hood wants to implement Federal take-over of public transit safety regulations. Because the FRA has done such a marvelous job in regulating intercity rail, the Secretary wants to replicate that bureaucracy at the FTA – even to the point of Federal control over local bus operations.
