Bicycles on Metrobus
Metrobus Welcomes You & Your Bicycle
Here's all you need to know to have a bicycle-friendly experience on Metrobus:
Transporting Your Bicycle
- There is no additional cost to bring a bicycle on Metrobus.
- Bicycles can be transported on the exterior bus racks at any time.
- Each bus features one quality, heavy-duty bicycle rack on the front, with space for two bicycles.
- You can easily load and unload your bicycle using the simple instructions provided on the rack.
- Traditional, tandem, electric-powered, and folding bicycles within the permitted size (80" long, 48" high, and 22" wide).
- Folding electric scooters or bicycles should be folded and stored between your legs or under the seat during travel.
What's Not Allowed
- Motorcycles, mopeds, tricycles, and any bicycles exceeding the size limits (80" long, 48" high, and 22" wide).
- Gas-powered scooters cannot be brought on board.
How to Use the Bus Bicycle Rack
- Before the bus arrives, remove any loose or valuable items from your bicycle.
- Make sure the bus stops and the driver sees you before stepping in front of the bus.
- Use one hand to squeeze the top handle and swing the rack down.
- Lift your bicycle onto the rack, placing its wheels in the trough. If the front trough is occupied, use the rear trough facing the opposite direction.
- Raise the spring-loaded bar over the front tire and place it near the frame for lateral support. The racks have a locking mechanism to ensure your bicycle stays securely in place.
- Board the bus, and don't forget to inform the driver when you'll be removing your bicycle.
- When you reach your stop, lower the spring-loaded bar, lift your bicycle off the rack, and swing the rack up if it's empty.
- Head to the nearest curb, wave to the driver to indicate you and your bicycle are clear, and off you go on your next adventure!
- Please remove all baggage and storage items from your bicycle before placing it in the rack.
- Your bicycle should be clean and have no sharp projections.
- For your safety, there are special mirrors on the buses that allow the operators to keep an eye on the racks when you are loading or unloading your bicycle.
- During emergency evacuations, bicycles should remain in the rack unless instructed otherwise by Metro employees, police, or fire officials.
Bicyclists are responsible for their own bicycles and all actions, injuries, losses, and/or damages related to their bicycles in station areas, aboard trains or on Metrobuses. Metro assumes no responsibility for lost or damaged bicycles.
