bus with old dual bike rack

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

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.
