Bike racks on Fairfax Connector busesFairfax Connector buses will have bike racks on all buses starting on Monday, Oct. 15, 2007. To celebrate this event, the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors will hold a ceremony in front of the Government Center located at 12000 Government Center Parkway Fairfax, VA at 8:30am, before the regular Board meeting. Read the announcement of the event and visit the Fairfax Connector Bikes on Buses page.
Fairfax is a large county, and this will be one way to bridge the many gaps in the county bicycle network. It will also allow those who have extra long commutes to take part of their trip by bike and part by bus. Cyclists can also connect with Metro buses that already are equipped with racks. Thanks to Charlie Strunk, the county bike coordinator, for making this happen.
