Tri-Rail's Rail Car Built for Bikes

The South Florida Regional Transportation Authority/Tri-Rail in Pompano Beach recently added its first car dedicated to carrying bicycles to its fleet of rolling stock. The specially equipped Bombardier trailer car contains 14 bike racks and some seating; it will operate as an add-on to the standard three-car train set. Demand has increased for bike storage on board Tri-Rail, which in the past only provided two bicycle straps per car. The agency is now retrofitting nine coach cars with bike racks so eventually each train will have its own bike car.
