Bike 'n' Bus
Easy On: Loading your Bike
Prepare your bicycle for the bike rack by removing any water bottles or loose items that may fall off while the bus is in motion. As the bus approaches, let the driver know that you intend to use the bike rack. You can do this by making eye contact with the driver and pointing to your bike and the rack.
||Lower the Rack|
Hold on to your bike with one hand and use your free hand to squeeze the handle at the top of the rack. Squeezing the handle will unlock the rack and it can then be lowered for use. If the rack is already lowered, move onto the next step.
||Load Your Bike|
Load your bike from the front or curb/platform side of the bus. Lift your bike into one of the rack's two wheel trays. A label tells you where the front wheel goes. The trays are far apart from each other to make loading/unloading easy if there is another bike there.
||Secure The Front Wheel|
Secure your bike by pulling the spring-loaded support arm out and over the front tire.
||Your bike is now ready for the ride!|
