If you've tried to use the TTC bike rack, you know there's room for improvement.

Due to delays, overcrowding, or expensive fares, or perhaps, a combination of the three, over the past few months TTC ridership has not shown the growth the transit agency expected.
But what if the TTC made it more enticing for riders to use a mixed commute? People could pedal past the most congested subway stops and hop on when it was most convenient for them, freeing up some much needed space for other straphangers. It could even allow cyclists to bypass delays and ease their rush-hour claustrophobia.
Of course, given current obstacles, there are limits to these possibilities.
