  2. Here’s the page for bicycles on current services, which includes Tacoma Link Light rail. It doesn’t look like there’s much in the way of rules.

    There’s a FAQ for the proposed line to Bellevue that says stations will have bike lockers, but I can’t come up with anything for the stations that are actually almost complete.

  3. Copenhagen, if I’m not mistaken, is absolutely flat. I’m interested to hear what strategies will work in Seattle.
