Mr. Frank Wilson
President and Chief Executive Officer
Metropolitan Transit Authority
Currently METRO allows bicyclists on board during off-peak hours. While this is helpful towards general mobility, commuter bicyclists work the same business hours as other transit customers and commuters. Restricting access during the peak travel periods significantly reduces the usefulness of this transit option.
Before long, I look forward to METRO's announcement that all light rail cars have been equipped with bicycle racks and that bicyclists will have open access during all operational time periods.
