DART rolled out its newest trains a few months back, called SLRV’s. These have several enhancements including ground level entrance for better ADA compliancy, and two bike hooks per car! Right now, there’s only a handful of these cars, and you don’t see them on every grouping of trains, but the indicator to look for from the outside is the paint that dips down (shown above). At rush hour, they typically have one or two SLRV’s added to every departure.
Once you climb aboard with your ride, you’ll note a single hook where you can lift your bike and hang the front wheel. The back wheel rests in a trench and a handle sits above every bike to make it easy to stand next to and hold, seen here:
They’re very easy to use, and it makes bicycling to work that much easier. We’ll post an update on the new bus bike racks soon as well…stay tuned!
