Bikes And Mass Transit A Good Combination

septa_trainTemple Ambler Assistant Professor Bradley Flamm says mass transit systems across the country have bike racks on buses, and some have machines that count every bike that goes on the rack, but at SEPTA things are done differently. “Every year they take one week and they count those bicycles on buses and rail vehicles, which is very good.  It’s helpful.  It gives us a snapshot of usage, but it doesn’t give us that entire year of data.”

With the snapshot, he says it’s hard to tell how many SEPTA riders use bikes in combination with buses. He also says riding the Regional Rail system with a bike is difficult at times because they are allowed only on off-peak trains, but he hopes SEPTA can eventually devise a system to accommodate bikes on all trains.

Temple Ambler Adjunct Professor Michael Carroll says he tries to get people thinking about multi-modal corridors, where they have transportation choices to get where they want to go.

“If we’re always going to be dependent on one mode, whenever that mode doesn’t work we lose out.  If we combine modes together whether it’s walking, biking, autos, transit into an integrated system, a problem in one mode doesn’t lead to sacrificing our access to things.”

He says the area people have access to expands dramatically if they can combine modes of transportation.  The two professors appeared Thursday on the monthly Transportation Edition of the WNPV talk program Comment Please by Univest.
