2 Bikers Taking Up a Full Row of Seats on the Train

by Anthonism

New York requires bicyclists to get a permit to bring their bikes onto the Metro-North and Long Island Railroad trains. The fee is a measly $5.00 and it lasts your lifetime. The main reason a permit was established was to make sure biker's — with their big, bulky bikes — read the rules for bringing them aboard. The MTA, which operates New York City's subways and buses, doesn't require a permit and these 2 bikers obviously didn't read the rules.

Whether you agree with a bicycle permit or not, riders like the 2 above will bolster any straphangers' case for its implementation as well as a governing official's plea to raise the fee at some point in the future. Which may undoubtedly be on the table behind closed doors given the fact that two pedestrians were killed by bicyclists in NYC last month.

MTA's rules for bike safety and courtesy clearly states, "Never put your bicycle where it blocks the aisle or doors," or an entire row of seats! Common sense and courtesy go a long way.

What makes the least sense, these cyclists rode the subway for only 5 stops. One can understand taking a long train ride to new destination before you begin hours of pedaling about, but, come on, that distance would have taken 5 minutes or less on a bike. Besides, you can't burn many calories sitting on the train.
