    You might not have realised it, but March is Bikes on Trams Month - well, it is in a small corner of
    Sheffield. Hugh McClintock & Dave Morris of Nottingham's School of the Built Environment have put a
    survey of attitudes to future integration of bikes and trams up on their website - please go there
    and fill in the form, it's at

    http://www.nottingham.ac.uk/sbe/research/projects/r016/questionnaires.htm

    In Sheffield, Stagecoach Supertram have agreed to allow us to conduct a survey in two parts. We will
    spend a day on the trams looking at whether the space is available to carry bikes, and at the same
    time do a survey of passengers to find out what their attitudes to bikes on trams are. The date we
    have fixed for this survey is the 30th of March, and we do need volunteers - please get in touch if
    you could spare some time to help on this important project.

    Looking forward to the Future of Integrated Transport!

    will do. I live just near the tram lines and have been wondering about carrying bikes on the NRT. I
    often cheat and get the robin hood line into Nottingham £1 / 6 min = no sweat :)

    out of rush hour I would have thought so with the amount of empty busses skeeting about between 9:30
    and 3 pm .

    guess ! these will be the same (local) passengers that shouted, spat and fought for the tram to be
    banned as an eyesore, unnecessary, messy, noisy, complete waste of money etc, but who are now
    rubbing their hands with greedy glee at the 30% increase in the value of their homes (over and above
    the national hyperinflation) which has resulted in 30k houses shifting pronto for 80k

    and the tram hasn't even gone live yet.

    In terms of integrated transport I noticed that all the buses in Vancouver had bike racks on the
    front of them, absolutely superb.
