Bike racks available on most DART buses
Bike and bus combo means a healthier commute
Bicyclists can now transport their bikes aboard Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) in brand-new, quality, heavy-duty racks attached to the front of hundreds of buses.
"Now they can combine their bicycle use with our rail and bus service to travel even further. Bicyclists can take a bike to their job, area bike paths or school," he said.
"The new racks have a locking mechanism to prevent bikes from coming loose. And, for additional safety, buses have had special mirrors installed that allow bus operators to see both the bike racks and the customers loading them."
Mendoza said that up to two bikes can be easily stored in each new rack, which cyclists can load and unload themselves, after following a few simple instructions affixed to the racks. More information on bicycle use and DART can be found at www.dart.org/bike or by calling Customer Service at 214-979-1111.
