Bike Safety


Be Streetcar Safe!
Streetcars share the road with cyclists, but streetcar tracks can pose some special challenges for bikes. Cyclists should be alert and use caution when riding near streetcars and streetcar tracks.  
Cross Tracks at 90 Degrees
Streetcar tracks can be slippery when wet, and sometimes bike tires can get caught in the gap next to the rail.  Bicyclists should try to cross streetcar tracks at as close to a right angle as possible.



Some additional tips for biking around the streetcar route:

Be a safe cyclist – always wear a helmet and other protective gear when riding
Look and listen...never cross in front of a moving streetcar
Beware of the door zone – watch for motorists opening vehicle doors into your travel space as you pass; don’t swerve into the path of other vehicles or the track gap
