Legislation seeks to increase bus bike rack capacity

Legislation seeks to increase bus bike rack capacity

AB-652, introduced by East Bay Assembly Member Nancy Skinner, would allow bus agencies to install 3-bike racks on their 40’ buses. Currently, buses are restricted to bike racks that extend no more than 36” from the front of the bus. Once this loophole is closed, it would allow larger bike racks, such as the Sportsworks Trilogy bike rack.
