Bikes on Fairfax busesAs we've mentioned before, as of October 2007, all Fairfax Connector buses were outfitted with racks for carrying bikes. The racks provide a great way for commuters and others to extend their range when using a bike for getting around. As you can see on the right, even the small-wheel Bike Friday can be accommodated (from Reston's 2007 Bike to Work Day event.)
The racks are being used: the latest figures show they were used a total of 379 times in February 2008. If you haven't tried them out yet, why not see if they can help you get around. To plan a trip, check out the WMATA Trip Planner, which includes Fairfax Connector buses. Enter from and to locations and the Planner will tell you the specific bus stop location, time of pickup, and bus to catch. To learn more about using the racks, see the Using Bike Racks on Connector page.
