Bikes on Transit

dsc_0722-600x400Sometimes bikes aren’t enough to get you where you want to go. However, combining your bike trip with NFTA Metro is now easier than ever.

BIKES ON METRO BUS

Metro Buses are equipped with bike racks, and each rack can hold two standard bikes. Although it’s easy to secure a bike to the rack, here are some rules and tips to follow:

  • All loose items not attached to your bike should be removed and taken on the bus.
  • A bike must be secured in the rack with the locking bar; no additional locks are allowed.
  • You are responsible for loading and unloading your bike onto and from the rack. The bus operator is not allowed to physically assist you with this task.
  • At your stop, make sure you tell the bus operator that you will be retrieving your bike from the rack.

 

HOW TO USE METRO BUS BIKE RACKS

BIKES ON METRO RAIL

All Metro Rail cars can accommodate two bikes per car in the areas designated for wheelchairs.

  • When boarding a train with a bike, please wait until other passengers have boarded.
  • If you are going downtown, you should board the first car in order to take advantage of the elevated platform.

Bike racks are also located at each Metro Rail Station if you would like to bike to a station and then take the train the rest of the way. Remember to properly lock your bike to the racks and do not leave your bike there overnight.
