Emily Weidner and Bob Hospidor, Executive Board Members of WalkBikeBerks, met with Executive Director Mr. Dennis Louwerse several weeks ago to discuss the possibility of installing bike racks on some of BARTA's buses.
We were pleased to hear that Mr. Louwerse is planning to suggest that BARTA purchase a number of bike racks to test out on a trial basis. Using BARTA's Route Listing map, a number of members of WBB reviewed the routes and selected nine that they felt might be appropriate. They are: Routes 1; 2; 8; 9; 11; 15; 17; 20 and 21.
We appreciate the progressive attitude of BARTA and look forward to assisting them in any way we can. To share your own support of BIKES on BARTA, contact:
