Bicycle-Rail Trip Analysis and Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reduction Focused Study

The first of these focused studies concentrated on the Metro Orange Line and parallel bicycle path. This Bicycle Rail Trip Analysis and Greenhouse Gas Emissions Study looks more broadly at bicycle trips to and from Metro Rail.
