MeBUG members Lawrence and Breta Cohen have been quietly working to promote improved arrangements for carrying bikes on trains, especially country trains.
They recently attended a workshop in Wangaratta on this subject. Lawrence reports as follows:
“Breta and I accepted an invitation to attend a recent Workshop on internal design of proposed long-haul VLocity trains. The Workshop was held at Wangaratta on the 4th of September. We were pleasantly surprised at the tone of the Workshop. There will be increased provision for bikes. Further, there seems to be an increasing realisation that a booking system is important. Ideally, with further lobbying and pressure, there may be a new booking system. We have attached our report on the Workshop.”
