    That’s pretty amazing, even though it looks really ugly. Today’s Streetfilms’ BRT post from Los Angeles shows that they are now using triple bicycle racks on the front of the buses, as opposed to the normal two like we have on the Miami-Dade County buses.

    going to the triple may not be a bad idea on some of the lines that I see frequently, as they frequently at capacity.

    BTW, Broward County has been putting triple bicycle racks on all their new buses.

    People should know that this line is a cog-railway up a fairly steep hill. Thus the need to get the bikes people ride downhill into the city from the suburb back up the the suburban hills in the evening.

    Good to know Graham, and all the more practical!
