I went to an info session run by Sydney Metro
on Saturday in Balmain Town Hall. One of the Metro planners said they don't want to carry bikes on the new Metro trains (if it ever gets built). Reasons given were "bikes might get caught in the automatic gates" and "passengers might get grease on their clothes".
Anyone know if they take bikes on the Paris Metro or other Metros?
They will take strollers and wheel chairs and luggage so I dont agree that it would be a problem that couldnt be designed for. They could direct cyclists to enter by the rear door for instance, to minimise problems, as most passengers use the middle doors.
