Let’s review Brampton Bike Racks
Brampton has come some distance in the past 3 years. As cycling gains in popularity, bike racks are becoming expected and required cycling infrastructure. Cyclists want ridership encouragement. Good quality parking is both practical and tangible evidence of this encouragement.
City of Brampton’s Bike and Ride initiative is designed to encourage transit riders to combine cycling and public transit. Covered bike racks, like this one at Main & Wellington are available on the entire transit bus fleet.
