No bikes on LRT during peak hours, staff report recommends

By CBC News Ottawa, February 15, 2018

Ottawa cyclists will be welcome to bring their bikes aboard the city's new light rail trains, as long as they're not travelling during rush hour.

According to a staff report to the city's transit commission next Wednesday, bicycles wouldn't be allowed on trains between the hours of 6 and 9 a.m., and 3 and 6 p.m. According to staff, such restrictions are common among North American transit systems.

'I'm afraid that transit is just not going to work for my commute, and that's disappointing.' - Alex deVries, Bike Ottawa
Ottawa's proposed rules would generally mirror those in Calgary, Montreal and Washington, D.C.
