BART has announced that it will conduct a pilot program that will eliminate restrictions on bringing bicycles on board trains Fridays in August, 2012. The SF Bicycle Coalition and our partners, including the East Bay Bicycle Coalition and the Bikes on Board volunteer committee, have long advocated for BART to make it easier for people to bike to BART and bring their trains into the stations and onto trains if needed. BART will be closely monitoring rider feedback to evaluate the success of this pilot. Volunteers will be stationed outside the faregates at select stations to distribute postcards to riders with information about how to give feedback on the program. BART staff will be on-hand to answer additional questions.
