Currently, Washington Metro Area Transit Authority (WMATA) prohibits full-sized (non-folding) bicycles on the trains during rush hours (7-10am; 4-7pm). As bicycles are legitimate transportation, particularly providing the "last mile" solution for many commuters, and those using them are easing congestion and air quality issues in our region, we believe that WMATA should investigate and implement a solution for bicyclists using full-sized (non-folding) bicycles to take those bicycles on board the trains during rush hour as well.
More times than I can count, I've forgotten that is rush hour as I go to hop on the metro with my bicycle. I've had to leave my bike in VA on my way to MD, and come back for it later, costing me so much extra time, money and worry about whether or not it's been stolen. And I know I'm not the only one!
More people would use bicycles if this option were expanded.
