Abstract: This paper defines two kinds of Steenrod operations in the spectral sequence of a bisimplical $ \operatorname{mod} p$ coalgebra and shows them to be a complete list of all such possible Steenrod operations. These operations are compatible with the differentials and with Steenrod operations on the total complex. A general rule is given for computing the operations on $ {E_2}$. A generalization of the Kudo transgression theorem is also proved, placing it in a larger and more natural setting.
