A Broader Reach—Transit Coverage Coming

Bike racks and lockers at The Wave

Bike racks and lockers at The Wave — Lynx Terminal

Transit is one of the things I’ve wanted to cover on this blog. Public transportation both extends the range of the bicycle and offers essential alternatives to the car for a just and healthy traffic culture. But it’s something I know very little about.

Enter our newest author, Laura Minns. Laura is a planner for Lynx. She will be filling us in on both existing programs and exciting new developments at Lynx. She’s also a little more in-the-know about Sunrail. She lives in South Orlando and has a great perspective on carfree mobility and free range kids. We’ll be adding a short bio to the Authors page soon, but for now, here’s a little about Laura.

  1. Thanks Keri, and welcome to Laura.

    I haven’t used Lynx service (use Lymmo all the time downtown), although if I examined my use of a car, I’d probably find situations where I could.

    I am noticing more and more bikes on the bus racks — so much so that I wonder if anyone doesn’t get on a bus because the bike rack was already full ….

    thus the need for a folder!!! :)

  2. At ProBike in Seattle John Ciccarelli brought up an interesting idea: coordination between transit agencies, bus manufacturers, and folding bike manufacturers.

    What if buses (and in some cases trains) were equipped with interior compartments that could hold folding bikes? And what if, when you went to a bike shop or on-line store, the models of folding bikes had certification indicating they meet criteria of the American Passenger Transport Association?
