Take Your Bike on the Bus

 


Prepping Your Bike

  • Remove water bottles, pumps, and other loose items.

Loading Your Bike

  • You can load your bike from the curb or in front of the bus. Do not step into oncoming traffic to load your bike.
  • Use one hand to pull down the release and hold your bike with your other hand. Do not lean your bike against the bus.
  • Lift your bike onto the bike rack and fit wheels into the wheel slots. Each wheel slot is labeled for front and rear wheel.
  • Raise the support arm over the front tire. Your bike is now securely latched.
  • Board the bus and pick up a Bicycle Retrieval Card from the side of the fare box. This is your reminder to retrieve your bike when you de-board.

Unloading Your Bike

  • Inform the bus driver that you will be unloading your bike as you approach your stop and turn in your Bicycle Retrieval Card. Use the front door to exit the bus. Unload your bike from the front of the bus or the curb, not from the street.
  • Raise the support arm off the tire. The support arm automatically folds down in a secure position.
  • Lift your bike out of the bike rack.
  • If there are no other bikes in the rack, fold up the bike rack against the front of the bus.
  • Step away from the bus with your bike.

Types of Bikes Allowed

 Only single-seat, two-wheeled bikes, folding bikes, and recumbents the size of a standard bike are allowed on the bus.

  • Tandems and bikes with oversized wheels, three or more wheels or those powered by internal-combustion engines cannot be accommodated. Electric bikes with a sealed battery compartment are permitted.
  • Some bikes have wheels that are too large or too far apart to fit in the bike racks.

Restrictions are as follows:

  • Max Tire Width: 2:35”
