Byk-Rak Bus Contracts
In Washington State,
New York State
BYK-RAK, BASED IN OWOSSO, MI, has announced
contracts with public transit agencies in Bremerton, WA,
and Westchester County, NY, to retrofit the agencies'
buses with new bike racks.
For Kitsap Transit in Bremerton, the company is retrofitting 16 of the 76 buses in the fleet with Byk-Rak's
wide-tire racks-designed to accommodate wide-tire
bicycles-and the agency has committed to buying more.
The two-position, three-inch rack also accommodates
standard-tire bicycles for adults and children.
In Westchester County, a suburb of New York City,
Byk-Rak is retrofitting 247 buses with two-position bike
racks designed with lift-assist technology, which allow the
bicyclist passenger to pull the rack down more easily and
slowly. The agency also opted for deployment sensors on
their racks, which alert the driver when the rack is down
and not stowed.

Byk-Rak's new wide-tire
racks accommodate both
wide- and normal-sized
bikes. Kitsap Transit is retrofitting 16 of its 76 buses with
the new hardware.

JTA's ADA ACCESSIBLE AV

the east and west sides of Downtown
Jacksonville from the new Jacksonville Regional Transportation Center at
LaVilla, which opens in March 2020,
and the city's sports and entertainment
district.
Simultaneously, the authority is
developing "Autonomous Avenue," the
conversion of the city's Skyway, an
elevated monorail system, to a roadway
that supports autonomous vehicles.
This first 0.9-mile leg will serve as a
proof of concept, not only for the JTA
but for the entire U.S. That conversion

will continue throughout the Skyway's
entire 2.5-mile footprint. Finally, the JTA
will expand the current Skyway through
at-grade connections to serve a 10-mile
network that flows through neighborhoods near Downtown Jacksonville.
JTA received a $12.5 million FTA
BUILD grant for the Bay Street Innovation Corridor in December 2018. This
$44 million phase is actively in development and planning.

TCRP Develops New
Data Language
THE ERA OF "NEW MOBILITY" and
demand-responsive transportation
(DRT) require a common data language,
allowing different software systems
to provide unified mobility service to
communities. The Transit Cooperative
Research Program (TCRP) has developed such a language for the public
transportation industry, TCRP Research
Report 210: Development of Trans-
actional Data Specification for Demand-

Responsive Transportation.
This report presents new transactional data specifications for DRT;
makes a case for why key stakeholders in the public sector-those that
fund and provide demand-responsive
services-should adopt and build out
these specifications; and provides some
tools to help them do so.

Boy Raises Funds for
Protective Vest for RTA K-9
Kubo, a special K-9 "officer" of the
Greater Cleveland Regional Transit
Authority (RTA) Transit Police,
pictured here with his handler,
Officer Dennis Harmon, became
the proud recipient of a customdesigned protective vest thanks to
the fundraising efforts of 10-yearold Brady Snakovsky of Strongsville
(also pictured). Snakovsky started
Brady's K-9 Fund in 2018 with
the mission to "donate practical,
mission-ready vests to as many
police K-9s as possible." Since
then he has raised enough to provide vests to more than 130 K-9s
with another 60 on a waiting list.
The vests are made of bulletproof,
moisture-wicking material and are
designed to be worn all day. Kubo
is RTA's only dual-purpose K-9
(bomb and patrol).
