@SandBoxJohn, I don't think it would be a good idea to mix bicyclist and the Purple Line in a tunnel. It is a grade separated LRT on the western end for starters and people should be kept off the tracks. In a tunnel, there would be limited visual clues as to how far away the approaching train is and it would surely lead to serious accidents. Besides I expect the pedestrian walkway will be blocked by a fence or wall from the tracks because it will be so narrow to keep people from falling or stepping onto the tracks.

Purple Line Smartrip cards: wonder if there are plans for ride or ticket sharing between the Metro and the Purple Line? (I assuming the systems will have separate paid entry points) There are many ways to offer discounts or combined fares on connecting trips between Metro and Purple Line stops.
