Councilors propose dedicated Blue Line car for bicyclists


City Councilors Lydia Edwards (East Boston, Charlestown, North End) and Michelle Wu (at large) say they want to get the T to set aside one car on every Blue Line train for bicyclists who would ride their bikes to work downtown, if only there were a way to get them across Boston Harbor.

The council agreed to let them hold a hearing to discuss a possible bike pilot on the Blue Line after Edwards said that one of the biggest frustrations of East Boston bike owners is the inability to ride it to work unless they work north of the neighborhood, at a time when East Boston roads are increasingly clogged by car commuters.

She added that the company that wants to build a giant development at Suffolk Downs is proposing a massive infrastructure for bicyclists, which will only end in frustration if its users can’t go any further than Maverick Square.
