|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 the posting of signs publicizing the bike-transit connection.
Show the best routes to bicycle to the station, where to park bikes, nearby bicycle shops, popular destinations, and how to bring bicycles on trains. Begin with stations with the greatest potential for bike-transit use.
|Peformance Measure||Encourage Metra to install signs at 10-20 stations by 2008.|
|Tracker Notes||I don't know of any signs posted.|
