Aus-Car is incorrect that each train only holds two bikes. Each car has racks for two bikes, and each train will have two cars at the minimum, and more bikes could theoretically be brought onto the cars and held by their owners. Still, two isn’t a lot, and I feel the bike-computers pain.
Other cities have different policies around bikes. When I took Caltrain between San Francisco and Mountain View (talk about a reverse commute), there were bike cars on each train with space for 40 bikes. And fold-up bikes could be taken on any car. That might be the solution for the bus-bike commuter.
What do you think? What is your experience with bikes on the bus and other forms of public transit? I’m especially interested in hearing about the bike experience on Sounder if anyone knows.
