This paper presents the results of an effort to provide a working paper and presentation to aid the Lane Transit District (LTD) in developing policies and practices for providing service to bicyclists. LTD faces a growing need to expand its existing rural route bikes on buses program to provide carriage for bicycles on all routes. Trends among transit providers, intermodal transportation planning to meet congestion and pollution limits, and citizen requests all point toward such an expansion of service. Though strong initial concern exists about possible schedule delays, this should prove to be a small, and manageable, problem. A newer bike rack design provides excellent speed and ease of use. Generally open policies governing use of the system will reduce burdens on operators and other personnel. Special study will need to be given to the present Eugene Station. Space limitations may require a policy of loading and unloading bicycles away from the station itself. Careful development of evaluation procedures concurrent with expanding service will be needed to provide policy guiding information without introducing undue burdens on operators and system patrons.
