Bike stair channel installed at Glenmont Metrorail station

Navigating stairs with a bicycle is a challenge. One solution that I've seen used extensively in Europe is a stair channel, a narrow ramp adjacent to the stairs that allows cyclists to walk their bike up or down the stairs. WMATA recently installed a stair channel at the Glenmont Metrorail station. The first stair channel was installed a the Rhode Island station. See the video below for a demonstration of how it works.
