Bring Your Bike on Your Commute

All Metro buses are equipped with bike racks. Bicycles must be transported on these racks, and are not allowed inside of the bus. Fat tires do not fit on the rack. For everyone's safety, any bike over 55 lbs is not allowed on the bike rack. Overloading the racks can cause heavy bicycles to tilt or even fall.

Waiting to Board

  • As the bus approaches have your bike ready to load
  • Remove any items that could fall off (bike pump, water bottle, etc).
  • Always approach the bus from the curb side.
  • Tell the bus driver that you are loading a bike.

Loading Your Bike

  1. Squeeze handle and pull down to release folded bike rack.
  2. Lift bike onto the rack, putting the front and rear wheels in the marked slots.
    Load the rack nearest the bus first.
  3. Raise the support arm, as far up on the wheel as you can.
    Make sure it is resting on your front tire, not on the fender or frame.

Unloading Your Bike

  • Tell the driver you need to unload your bike.
  • Move the support arm down and lift out your bike.
  • Please fold up the rack if it is empty.

Rules of the Rack

  • For safety reasons, the driver cannot get off the bus to assist you.
  • Bike racks are first come, first served. Each bus can carry two bikes.
  • The front wheel of the bike closest to the bus should face curbside. The front wheel of the second bicycle must face the bus driver's side.
  • There is no additional fare for using the bike rack.
  • Children 10 and younger must be accompanied by an adult to load and unload bikes.
  • Bikes are not allowed to be transported inside the bus.
  • Any bike weighing over 55 lbs are not allowed on Metro's bike racks.
