Now here is an interesting idea!

Instead, Gustafson thinks perhaps it's time to scrap Free Rail Zone entirely and replace it with a free bike zone (a.k.a. a bike-share system).
"One of the things you could do is get rid of Free Rail Zone, but replace it with a readily available bike [share] program so people could still circulate for 30 minutes at no cost." Or, put another way, "Reshape the fareless zone to put a greater emphasis on carbon-free circulation; and the best free circulation in the Central City probably ought to be on bikes."

At least buses can be used by virtually everyone; what is his proposal for those who because of physical condition or age, or by their business need (i.e. carrying items) cannot use a bicycle?

I think they are talking about streetcars here on the transit side and not buses
