MTA will add bike racks to Bx23, Q50 buses

Posted: Updated:
THE BRONX -

The MTA announced it will add bike racks to its Bx23 and Q50 buses.

The new addition is part of the MTA's pilot program 'Bike and Ride,' which launched in 2015.

The program gives cyclists an opportunity to reach destinations they normally would not have access to exclusively using a bicycle.

The racks, known as 10-second brackets, will hold two bikes at a time and be placed on the front bumper of the bus.

They are expected to be added beginning in Spring 2018.
