Take your bike in a train

New York strap-hangers will soon have something new to hang.

The Metro-North Railroad is testing bicycle hooks on a couple of train cars.

New York-area commuters will be able to take their bikes along for the ride.

The bike hooks are in the area of the cars also used for wheelchairs.

The bike-commuters will have to remove their two-wheeled rides, if the space is needed by someone in a wheelchair.

The commuter-line is looking for feedback from both handicapped and bike-riding patrons.
