Torrance Transit is looking to add a new feature to its buses.

Tonight at City Council, the Transit Department will seek approval for new bicycle racks that will carry up to three bicycles at once. This will increase the number of bicycles from two to three. It will help promote multi-modal transportation and the use of bicycles as an alternative means of travel. Officials say over time, this helps with alleviating traffic congestion. It can also reduce fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions.

The City Council meeting will start at 7 p.m.
