BART to Try "Bikes On Board" Every Friday in August

BART to Try "Bikes On Board" Every Friday in August

To see how well bikes and BART riders mix – especially during peak commute hours – the transit agency will allow bicycles on board its trains all day each Friday in August. BART will also allow bikes inside of the 12th Street and 19th Street BART stations all day. BART’s other bike rules that apply Monday through Thursday will not change, nor will BART’s prohibition of bikes in the first car and on crowded train cars. BART insiders have long debated lifting its restrictions, and “I’m happy to see that we’re now about to put the idea to the test,” said BART Board Vice President Tom Radulovich in a press statement. Cyclists, particularly the East Bay and San Francisco bicycle coalitions, played a key role in helping design the pilot project, he said. “We are delighted to see the steps BART is taking to be a truly bicycle-friendly transit system,” said Renee Rivera, Executive Director of the East Bay Bicycle Coalition.
