CABO Supports AB 2707, transit buses carrying three bikes

The California Association of Bicycling Organizations strongly supports AB 2707, as amended April 21. By modifying existing limitations on length, AB 2707 would allow public transit buses to carry front racks capable of accommodating three bicycles.
Combining bus and bicycle travel benefits both modes of transport, and there is great demand for this change.
