Bike Carrier Racks on DART Buses

This may be old news to some of you but I thought Id pass it on:

http://www.dart.org/riding/bike.asp




Carrier Racks on DART Buses
New! In the summer of 2008, DART will begin to install bike racks on DART buses. Some things to remember:

* Customers are allowed to use the racks as they are installed but should be reminded that initially, buses with racks may not be available on the return trip. DART does allow riders to carry bikes onboard provided the bicycles are clean and there is room on the bus.

* Cyclists are responsible for loading and unloading their bicycles on the carrier racks. Bus operators are not allowed to assist. Cyclists use the carrier racks at their own risk and DART is not responsible for damaged or stolen bicycles.

* Cyclists are reminded that while DART encourages biketrans commuting, the safety and comfort of all passengers is of the utmost importance and care should be exercised when riding, parking and carrying bicycles onboard. Courtesy and alertness on the part of the cyclist will ensure a pleasant ride for everyone.

I am on thier bicycle Bike & Ride Advisory Panel. They will have ALL buses mounted with racks by the end of the year, starting in Nov they will begin full implementation. Also the new train cars will have bike racks inside and more room if not racked.

Im glad for the racks coming on the trains. Its such a hassle having to hold onto my bike
to keep it from falling over when on the train. Also- not every conductor knows the rules
about bikes. I'm sure they wont be confused with a train that has racks.
