Bicyclists will be able to ride on trains all day, including commuting hours, in BART’s second bikes on board pilot program, beginning today.
The program, which runs through Friday, is a test of how bicyclists can integrate with commuters, according to BART officials.
In the first pilot program, on each Friday in August last year, the trial was limited because Fridays have the lightest commute, and August is traditionally a lighter commuter month, according to BART.
Some changes were made from the first to second pilot programs, including no bikes being allowed on any of the first three cars on a train during heavy commute hours, BART officials said.
Feedback from the public will help determine results from the pilot program, and ways to improve it in the future, according to BART.
