How to Load/Unload your Bike
Important to know
Cyclists assume all responsibility for any damage and/or injury that occurs as a result of their bicycle being placed onto a bus bike rack. This includes injury to the cyclist, other customers, or damages to any bicycles, the bus, or other vehicles. A sudden stop or any other accident experienced by the bus does not remove responsibility from the bicycle owner for damages or injuries to other customers or themselves.
There is no age restriction for using the bicycle racks, but the rider must be able to load/unload their bicycle competently, securely, safely, and without assistance from the bus operator. Bus operators are not permitted to assist. Any child/youth or adult that is unable to safely operate the bicycle racks may be restricted from using the bicycle rack.
During an emergency evacuation of a bus, bicycles must be left in the bicycle rack unless the retrieval of bicycles is directed by the bus operator, a supervisor, or a Police or Fire official.
Only non-collapsible, conventional bicycles that are no longer than 80 inches, no higher than 48 inches, and no wider than 22 inches are permitted. Mopeds, tricycles, unicycles, motor-powered bicycles and motorcycles are prohibited.
