Encouragement of folding bikes on Transit systems
- Some time ago I spotted a story about the president(?) of the Chicago
Transit Authority(?) experimenting with folding bikes on his subway
system and toting a Brompton in an effort to encourage his
passengers to do likewise. Anyone hear of any developments/feedback
What i like about the story is the persuasion by example which I seem
to hear about more with public servants in the USA, - cycling mayors,
etc.Maybe its just their PR/ bullshit is better.
I've just received a copy of Sustrans Supporters Review 2001 which
has a message from John Spellar, the Minister for Transport, where he
writes "my aim is to see cycling brought more fully into the
mainstream of transport provision." He talks about sustrans
work "bringing about fundamental changes in travel patterns and
culture". Oh that it were true. It would be nice to hear that he is
sometimes seen on a bike?
