"Bicycle Rider Only Car: Riders with Bicycles" on the Fred LINE

A designated "bicycle rider only car - riders with bicycles" will meet an un-served and growing need. With this VRE provided service, commuters will be more inclined to take their (non-collapsible) bicycles with them to and from work and ride to and from their offices from the train stations on the Fredericksburg Virginia Railway Express (VRE) line. Currently VRE only offers Cyclist the following: Collapsible bicycles are permitted on all trains, (yet room for them is not available).   Full size bicycles are only allowed on the last three northbound, the mid-day, and the last three southbound trains on each line (ONLY TWO BIKES PER LINE). Note that these train car times do not accommodate the standard commuter's work schedule.  Additionally, this Bicycle Rider Only Car will favor VRE on their Green initiatives as well as encourage more commuters to a healthier life style.  Lastly, rising gas prices are not a thing of the past.

      It's a no-brainer! It's important to create more alternatives for individuals who elect to use mass transit at a time when the cost of fuel is rapidly increasing

      Great idea - more people would probably ride the VRE if they could bring along their bike!!! What a great idea, get a little exercise in while riding to work!!!
