The Port Authority by next fall will have bike racks on all of its buses.
An authority board committee today voted to accept a $32,500 grant from the Richard King Mellon Foundation to complete financing of a $250,000 project to put racks on the 190 buses that don't have them.
About 600 buses already have racks, but the absence of racks on the other vehicles created doubts among bicyclists.
"That's the main complaint we hear from the bicycle community right now. You can't rely on it," said authority CEO Steve Bland.
The project was funded with $175,000 in federal Congestion Mitigation Air Quality funds and $42,500 from the state.
