BART is setting a goal in its new bike plan to double the rate of passengers who bike, currently at 4%, within 10 years. Their updated bike plan includes:
- Expansion of secure parking facilities
- Reduction of ‘blackout periods’
- Reevaluation of the bike ban on escalators
According to a SF Streetsblog post
, the plan is supported by the SF Examiner and the SF Bicycle Coalition. SFBC Executive Director Leah Shahum commented that the organization “commends the BART leadership for stepping up their commitment to encouraging more bicycles on and to the BART stations.”
The final plan will be presented to the BART Board on June 14, 2012.
