Calling All Bicyclists Who Ride METRO
Tuesday, November 27, 2012 2:20 PM  

Bicylist riding pass bus

Do you ride a bike and hop on a bus or train?

We'd love for you to participate in a focus group to brainstorm strategies that would make it easier to bike and ride.

METRO and the Houston-Galveston Area Council (H-GAC) are seeking input from bicyclists on the use of public transit. Want to join? You must meet the following criteria:

  • Already integrate biking and public transit
  • Bike but not currently using public transportation
  • Use public transit but not with a bike

Focus group dates are Wednesday, Dec. 5 from noon to 1:30 p.m. and Thursday, Dec. 6, from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

The METRO Bike and Ride Access and Implementation Plan will define links between the bicycle and transit networks in the METRO service area so more people can easily use both bikes and buses or trains to get around.

You must RSVP by calling Patricia Lawhorn at 832-681-2523, or email bikeandride@h-gac.com. Once you RSVP, you'll be given the downtown location of the meetings.

Do you think you can make one more of these after finals?  I know quite a few students that use METRO Park & Ride.

How about more B-Cycle places, like the two big parks:  Hermann and Memorial?  SA has them all over the downtown and the Riverwalk.

Refit the 101-118 LRT railcars after the new ones come in for bike racks.  And two car trains would prevent the witching hours!
