Recently we discussed the appalling absence of bike racks on Wichita buses. Wichita, the largest city in Kansas has no bike racks on its buses, while communities such as Lawrence, Topeka, and Johnson County do.
Recently, the metro transit system in Council Bluffs and Omaha has added bicycle racks to buses. Council Bluffs joins Ames, Cedar Rapids, Waterloo/Cedar Falls, Iowa City/Coralville/North Liberty, the Quad Cities, and the Des Moines DART systems as bus systems with bicycle capacity. The only large urban area transit system left to add bike racks is Sioux City.
It sounds like many cities in Iowa are doing a good job of serving their multi-modal commuters.
The article also provides a nice tutorial on how to use the bike racks, with pictures and a video:
