Rebuilding Place in the Urban Space

"A community’s physical form, rather than its land uses, is its most intrinsic and enduring characteristic." [Katz, EPA] This blog focuses on place and placemaking and all that makes it work--historic preservation, urban design, transportation, asset-based community development, arts & cultural development, commercial district revitalization, tourism & destination development, and quality of life advocacy--along with doses of civic engagement and good governance watchdogging.

Metrolink bike train cars

Notions Capital sends us the link to this piece from Metro Magazine, "Metrolink launches 'bike cars' to transport cyclists," which includes this great image.

Standard Metrolink cars can carry two bikes (presumably on hooks), the cars with the bike wrapping (or other indicators) can carry 18 bikes and at least initially will run on weekends on the "Inland Empire" trains providing service to beach communities.

This Streetsblog LA entry from August, "Box: Metrolink Passes Bike Friendly Test," has images of the interior of the train cars.
