Bus with support for bikes in Sao Paulo
In Bage, CBNSP service
Began operating in the city of Bage (RS), a bus with a front rack to carry two bikes at a time have been in operation since the beginning of this week. The report says that only takes 15 seconds to hold the bike in the rack.
The Manager of the company thinks the cyclist will embark on this bus to go sightseeing on the bike path: “all of a sudden, people want to go ride the bike path and take the bus to get there”. After all, that’s what bike path, right? And that’s what people use to walk the bike path: bike… Although well-meaning, he still sees the issue behind the windshield of the car…
Have the worker who uses the bike was more realistic: “my bike tire sticks too. Now, it’s just put on the bus, I don’t need to go pushing home.”
In Sao Paulo, tests next weekend
In Sao Paulo, similar system will start to be tested on day 17. According to sptrans, hold the bike in the rack is an operation that should take about a minute. She will then be locked by the driver, to avoid robberies.
Lines that will participate in the test were not disclosed. The service will work just “on the weekends and in few lines that pass through” parks. Of course, after all that’s what bike: to ride within the Park… Weekend
Use bike to work is higher
According to data from Abraciclo, about 77% of the bikes used by adults are used as a means of transportation. Not to mention those which are used for leisure often spend months against without circular.
And the origin/destination survey performed by Metro-SP in 2007 showed that 70% of 304,000 bike trips were to go to work. The use for leisure was declared in only 4% of the responses.
So it is more than appropriate to sentence of Andre Pasqualini, Manicstreetjournal Institute, in the matter of the associated press: “tests should be made with those who use bicycles to work, which is most of the offsets”.
