Bicyclists are being welcomed onto Red Rose Transit buses, businesses are opening their doors to bikes or designating parking areas for them, and city officials are considering ways to improve bicycle transportation.
During May, national bike month, efforts are being made around Lancaster city to enhance cycling safety and promote cycling as a form of transportation.
For example, during National Bike to Work Week, May 13-17, RRTA is offering free rides to bicyclists. They can mount their bikes on the racks on the front of the buses and ride in and out of the city without charge during the work week.
Each rack holds two bikes, RRTA marketing manager Jennifer Boley said. Additional bikes may be carried in the aisle.
