Express Bicycle Bus
this is an idea!
the Aspen Times has a story on the Express Bicycle Bus
the commuter could mix their modes of transport in the DC area to cover more ground more quickly
their daily commute would start on the bicycle
they could get to their stop
which may not be the closest stop
but... more distance can be traveled on bike than on foot in the same amount of time
then get a ride on the bus which does not stop at every stop
then get dropped not at the stop which is most close to their place of work
finishing their trip on their bicycle
arriving there more quickly
because the bus was Express rather than Local (LOCO!)
also more rapid because of the use of the bicycle rather than walking
the use of DC Smart Bikes may also become part of the DC Commuter of the Future!
