Bring your bike on board

Loading your Bike

1. When the bus approaches and stops, have your bike ready to load. Signal to the driver that you will be loading a bike. Approaching from the curbside, lower the rack by grasping the handle and pulling down.

 

2. After lowering the rack, place the bike into either of the rack’s wheel wells. Remove any loose items or valuables from your bike, such as panniers.
3. Finally, pull the support arm out and up over the front tire of the bike.

 

Unloading your Bike

  1. When the bus approaches the stop, you should inform the driver you will be removing your bike.
  2. Approaching from the curbside or while directly in front of the bus, you should raise the support arm off the tire.
  3. After the support arm is off, lift the bike out of the wheel wells.
  4. Once the bike is out of the wheel wells, fold up the rack if no other bikes are on the rack.
