Bikes On Buses
Take your bike with you when you ride a bus. Our low-floor fleet is equipped with bike racks on the front bumper with enough room for two bikes. If you’re taking a commuter bus – the high-floor bus – store your bike in the luggage compartment in the belly of the bus.
How to Load Your Bike on the Rack
- Squeeze the handle to release the latch, and then fold down the bike rack.
- Lift your bike onto the rack. Slide the front wheel into the slot labeled “front wheel here.”
- Raise the support arm up and over the tire so that the hook rests on the highest point of the front wheel.
How to Unload Your Bike from the Rack
- Raise the support arm off the tire and fold down into the secure position.
- Lift your bike out of the rack.
- Squeeze the handle and fold the bike rack.
- Step away from the bus and move to the curb, allowing the bus to proceed.
Note: Bus operators are not allowed to assist you with your bike. However, please tell the driver whenever you plan to load or unload your bike. Also, a fold-up bike in its own carrying case may be brought aboard any METRO bus or train as a carry-on. Remember to remove all loose items from your bike, such as bottles or air pumps.
Tips to Remember
- On low-floor buses, you must operate the rack yourself, loading and unloading your bike. If the rack is empty when you remove your bike, please place it in the upright position.
- On high-floor buses, you must open and close the designated bay door – not the driver.
- METRO is not responsible for any damage to bikes.
- Bikes are permitted on METRORail.
