BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) currently restricts which stations people with bikes can use during commute hours (7:05am to 8:50am and 4:25pm to 6:45pm), which is totally annoying and unfair. They need to figure out a better way to accommodate people with bikes so that they can use the public transportation system at all times.
Recently the opportunity has come up to help improve BART’s bicycle service by providing feedback via their bike survey. Please help us make a statement by taking BART’s quick 5 minute survey within the next couple days, as they are likely to take it down soon.
Please tell BART:
1. No black out periods for bikes on BART.
2. Bikes allowed on escalators at all times.
Both these proposals were floated by a BART director, but BART staff shot him down. We’d love to show the BART board of directors that these ideas have the community’s support.
Here’s the survey link:
To help even more, you can send comments to BART’s board of directors at
