Simi Valley this week joined other eastern Ventura County cities in making their public transit buses more friendly to bicyclists.
The City Council voted 4 to 0 to equip all 11 city buses with bicycle racks, at a cost of $10,137. The racks should be in place by September. Thousand Oaks and Moorpark already are placing bike racks on city buses. The racks can only hold two bicycles at a time because of state regulations.
