|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 2||Encourage Metra to improve bicycle access to their stations and trains.|
Encourage Metra to provide bicycle access in the planning, design, and operation of new and refurbished stations and trains.
Bicycle accommodations should be integrated into the planning for new transit facilities. Bicycle access should not interfere with other passengers' convenience or safety, particularly for the disabled and elderly.
|Peformance Measure||Encourage Metra to prepare planning, design, and operational guidelines on providing bicycle access to their stations and trains by 2007.|
|Tracker Notes||It's unknown if Metra has created such guidelines.|
