Why isn't there more space for bikes on the bus bike racks?

Operator view of 3-bike rack on busWe've tested racks that hold three bikes to see if we could increase bike capacity on buses, but we found that the larger racks just aren't a safe option for us.

As you can see in the photo at right, when loaded with bikes, the three-bike rack blocks the operator's vision, decreases the operator's line of sight, and blocks the headlights. The larger rack also brings up safety concerns when the bus is turning in areas with narrow streets or tight clearances. 

We'll stay in contact with our bike rack vendor and keep track of design changes in case there's an opportunity to expand bike rack capacity in the future.
