Ride your bike to bus stop, take a bus to work
Metro, Hamilton County's public transit service, will have a lunchtime rally Monday to introduce new bike racks on its buses.
The rally, on Fountain Square downtown, will feature a demonstration of Metro's new Rack and Ride service that allows commuters to take their bicycles along.
The new program will also allow Cincinnati police officers on bicycles to take the buses to outlying beats.
The bike-rack program is funded entirely by a $500,000 grant from the Federal Congestion Mitigation/Air Quality program.
For information, call Steve Herman at Metro, 632-7591.
