SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit trains will allow bicycles all day on all trains on Friday's this month as part of a test to see if commute-time blackouts are still necessary.
The San Francisco Chronicle says BART normally bans bikes during weekday morning and evening commuter rush hours on all but the Richmond-Fremont line.
Transit officials say trains are too crowded to accommodate bikes during rush periods.
But cyclists complain that the restrictions discourage them from riding BART because it is difficult or even impossible for them to pedal to and from work or school.
BART officials hope enough cyclists will bring their bikes aboard to let the agency know if it can eliminate or relax the weekday bike blackout.
