In Denmark, Bikes Have a Seat on Some Trains

In Denmark, Bikes Have a Seat on Some Trains | TheCityFix.com.

Well, the Copenhagen Climate Summit last year was a bust but those Danes are sure leading the way in showing the rest of us how to make it easy for people to leave their cars at home and grab their bikes. Fully one-third of Copenhagen residents use a bicycle for everyday activities!

Denmark’s transit system continues to build its reputation for being bike friendly. Early last year, the Danish State Railways, offered free bike carrying on their trains that serve greater Copenhagen, in an effort to further endorse biking as a legitimate mode of transit. As the blog Copenhagenize.com wrote, “DSB hopes to make everyday journeys easier for Copenhageners and encourage more people to use their bicycle.”

The Danish transit service provider is going a step further by providing bicycle pumps in existing bike compartments. The pumps will double the capacity of “flex compartments” for more bicycle capacity.
