Bicycles for Mass Transit -- What an idea!

Bicycle transit is a fascinating new twist on mass transit

Find green business solutions
california green energy solutions I've grown accustomed to thinking about mass transit as buses and light rail...and trains. But I found a website today that really turned my head on a spoke!

Think of bikes as a new form of urban mass transit. Instead of building heavy duty rails above the highways and byways to help people get places faster -- think about building lighter weight roads for bikes! Up high...protected from the wind.

What a concept!

Bicycle Transportation Systems points out that a bicycle transit system increases urban mobility at a fraction of the cost of traditional modes of urban mass transportation.

  • Speeds are faster than light rail, buses or motor vehicles.
  • Carrying capacity matches rail systems at an affordable cost.
  • Air resistance can be reduced to allow riding speeds of 25 mph
  • Cycling can be 90% more efficient than normal cycling on the street
  • It is a low-cost, low-tech transportation solution...
And what they were too kind to point out is the amount of exercise provided would reduce the obesity factor!

This is the kind of off the grid thinking that will be needed to cope with our escalating population and our need for speed!

Congratulations of this innovative solution!

This is certainly not the only bicycle solution being developed. Bikes just might be the odd solution in which going backwards is really going forward. China might just have a better mass transit system than any of the Western countries...if they can only keep hold of it!
