Our bicycle policy allows non-collapsible, conventional operational bicycles, as well as tandem, electric-powered, and folding bicycles that are no longer than 80", no higher than 48", and no wider than 22". A folding bicycle has a frame that folds and two wheels that come together.
The following are prohibited: motorcycles, mopeds, tricycles, motor-powered bicycles (including but not limited to gasoline-powered bicycles), and any other bicycle that exceeds the size restrictions stated above. Metro reserves the right to amend or terminate this policy at any time to ensure the safe and/or efficient use of Metrobus.
Bicycles that are allowed by our policy may be transported on the exterior of buses at all times, but only in Metro-installed bicycle racks. Bicycles, excluding properly enclosed folded or disassembled bicycles, shall not be transported inside Metrobuses at any time. Cyclists shall remove all baggage, backpacks, pouches, baskets or similar storage items from bicycles before placing bicycles in the bicycle racks on the exterior of buses. All bicycles allowed on the exterior of buses must be clean, free of excess grease and dirt, and not have sharp projections.
Cyclists can transport their bicycles aboard Metrobus in quality, heavy-duty racks attached to the front of each bus. Up to two bicycles can be stored in each rack, which cyclists can easily load and unload themselves by following the simple instructions affixed to the racks. The racks also have a locking mechanism to prevent bicycles from coming loose.
For safety, buses have special mirrors that allow bus operators to see the bicycle racks and riders loading bicycles. There is no additional fee for riders to bring their bicycles on a bus.
During the emergency evacuation of a Metrobus, bicycles must be left in the bike rack unless the removal of bicycles is directed by the Metrobus Operator, Metro Transit Police Officer or city/county police or fire officials. Metro assumes no responsibility for lost or damaged bicycles.
