|Chapter 4||Transit: Bicycling and public transportation are each alternatives to the private automobile. For many people, however, neither form of transportation can compete with the automobile's travel range, flexibility, and speed. But when bicycling and public transit trips are combined, they can be as convenient as car trips, and are often quicker and more relaxing, without the automobile's environmental impacts. This chapter identifies five objectives designed to improve bicyclists' access to transit.|
|Objective 1||Improve bicycle access to CTA stations and trains.|
Lower the minimum permitted age for passengers with bicycles to board CTA trains and buses.
Currently customers 12 through 17 years old must be accompanied by an adult. Lowering the age of unsupervised access will enable adolescents, who need more transportation options, to combine transit and bicycle use.
|Peformance Measure||Lower the minimum permitted age for passengers with bicycles to 14 by 2006.|
