Encourage Metra to permit bicycles on their trains on a year-round basis.

Strategy 4.2.1 Details

Chapter 4Transit: 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 2Encourage Metra to improve bicycle access to their stations and trains.
