Integration of Bicycles and Transit

A Synthesis of Transit Practice

Transportation Research Board of the National Academies, Federal Transit Administration

"The information in this synthesis can be used to improve existing bicycle services and to assist other communities with developing new bicycle and transit services. This report is an update of TCRP Synthesis of Transit Practice 4. Systems with more comprehensive bicycle and transit integration services tend to have the most success attracting bicycling customers. Several transit agencies reported that their bike-on-bus and bike-on-rail services tended to have greater use when bicycles were accommodated at all times on all routes. There are often budgetary and capacity limitations to providing bicycle services throughout a system. However, when it is possible, installing bike racks on all buses and removing peak period and permit restrictions can help a transit agency serve the most potential bicycle customers."
