Bike racks installed on NJ Transit Buses
Ride even further with NJ Transit Bike Racks
NJ Transit has begun implementing Bike Rack installations on their buses.
A few Hoboken411 readers pointed this out – and some even said “doesn’t that defeat the purpose of riding your bike?”
Bike racks are good on buses for several reasons
However, 411 reader Brian shares some viable reasons why this is great.
- As a cyclist the one fear next to being hit by a car (which happened to me 6 months ago) is breaking down or getting caught in a down pour and not being able to get back home or close by. The bus with bike rack provides a solution.
- For bike commuters and those who use their bikes to get around town for shopping, to work etc. Having a bus with bike racks enables folks to go further away from home with their bikes so that they can ride elsewhere. As an example, my wife would live to ride at Liberty State park but will not ride there directly – too far for her plus the road traffic to get there. But if a bus could get her closer she would.
Overall, bus bike racks enable bike riders to travel further away from home without using a car.
Where will you take your bike now that you know NJ Transit offers this?
