Bikes on Metro - NEXUS survey

Submitted by Claireprospert

Earlier this year, we pressed for a Bikes on Metro trial – although NEXUS bosses said no, at least it kick started a stakeholders’ group examining the long-standing question of whether bicycles can be carried on the TW Metro.

As part of this investigation, NEXUS are surveying Metro passengers (on-train) and a wider population (off train) in order to capture the views of bike users and non-bike users:

If it's not a folder, you can't take it on board - but campaigners say full-size bikes okay on similar trains in Germany

CYCLE CAMPAIGNERS’ CALL FOR A TRIAL OF BIKES ON THE METRO

An open letter was sent today to Metro bosses asking to pilot the carriage of standard bicycles on their network.

The bicycle ban on Metro trains has for decades been a big bugbear to the cycling community. The Newcastle Cycling Campaign collected corroborating evidence in 2011, and swiftly submitted this to Metro bosses. The cycling community was also quick to renew their demand to carry bikes on the trains at an event organised by Metro in November 2011.
