Bikers want bus support

Last summer I started a petition to see how many people on and around Vancouver Island would be interested in seeing improved bike transportation infrastructure on the Greyhound buses on Vancouver Island. My goal was to find out whether I was the only one who wanted a better way to transport my bike around the Island. My online petition outlines the difficulties of such a task and how it is quite a deterrent for those that wish to cycle in this area, which is ironic as we are renowned for our great cycling destinations and facilities. It turns out over 500 people feel the same way I do and probably a lot more who haven’t seen my petition. These are people that would otherwise be very eager to use the services of Greyhound if only it were more convenient for them to do so. I feel that there is great potential for Greyhound to fill this void, increase ridership and also create a lot of positive press in the process by continuing to endorse efficient modes of transportation.
