I made this video because I know that taking a bike on transit—especially buses—for the first time can be prohibitively scary. Which is why I am very excited that it has received so much positive attention.
I have dealt with crippling social anxiety myself, so it is very satisfying to think that with one video I can both reduce anxiety AND increase transit ridership. At least a little bit.
RTD doesn’t seem to be motivated to encourage people to use their services (which I will talk at length about later), so it’s up to advocates to do it—and this video is just a drop in the ocean of what it is going to take to change the transportation status quo.
Stay tuned for more drops.
