I emailed my transit agency to ask what their policy for folders on the bus and the response was "We do not have a policy for bringing bikes on board other than the bike rack on the front of the bus."
Not sure how to read the response. I think it says bikes on ONLY if on the front. I would like to bring the folder on because it will not fit on the front rack.
Let me know if you've been allowed to bring yours on and please include the transit agency name so that I can get a copy of their policy to use to get ours clarified/improved. I have a trip in July that will start with the local agency and then on to Amtrak. If I can't get on local I need to do a different trip.
