I haven’t read everything in depth but has there been mention of bike transport using the front of BRT busses as exists on current ones? I live and work not far from planned BRT stops but having the ability to bike to/from would just add to the convienience.

It's one of five options laid out by the city in the wake of feedback collected for over a year.
