Bikes and Transit Guide

The Northern Virginia Transportation Commission (not to be confused with the Northern Virginia Transportation Authority, and especially not to be confused with the pro-roads everywhere group Northern Virginia Transportation Alliance) has just released a report entitled A Guide to Bicycle and Transit Connections in Northern Virginia.

The guide is mostly a summary of existing info related to bikes and transit in N. VA. There's a section on Innovative Ideas from Other Metropolitan Areas including high-capacity storage in Chicago, bike shelters in Switzerland, and the Bike Tree.

There's also mention of the new FTA policy to increase the area considered served by bicycles to three miles.

Recommendations include:
1. Monitor Bike/Transit Usage
2. Monitor Bike Rack Usage on Buses
3. Measure Effect of Covered Bike Parking on WMATA Passengers
4. Increase Bike Shelters or Bike Lockers at VRE Stations and Other Transit Systems
5. Transform Bike to Work Day to Bike to Work Week
6. Provide Bicycle Accommodations on New LRT and BRT Corridors
7. Support VDOT's Policy of Integrating Bicycle and Pedestrian Accommodations and Encourage On-Going Regional Plans and Studies
8. Look for Opportunities to Demonstrate New Bicycle/Transit Technologies
