Los Angeles – Metrolink will roll ten “bike cars” into regular service just in time for CicLAvia. Bike cars are passenger railcars outfitted with space for between 18 and 24 bicycles, instead of two slots like other railcars. The agency hopes this will encourage more Southern Californians to take the train to their destination by giving them a way to get to and from the train station by accommodating more bicycles.
