An Emily Carr Institute student, Scott Staniland (stanilan@eciad.ca), as part of his design program, undertook a study of modifying the interior layout of TransLink low floor type buses for accommodating bikes. Using up and down manually folding seats and bike stands automatically swinging out from the wall to a 30 degree position, cyclists would be able to roll their bikes through the front door and then exit by the rear door.
