    From the Biking to Work story: ““A lot of people don’t realize that they can piece their commute together with different types of transit options,” Mr. Nesper said, adding that bike commuters often end up becoming savvy transit consumers. “Many city buses now have bike racks on them,” and some subway systems allow bikes in certain cars.”

    Many in NYC do this using Citibike. These transit-bike riders, especially with multiple transfers, use Citibike to skip overcrowded lines and get a bit of exercise on their commute.
