 It’s easy to take your bike with you when you ride RTS! Check out our video below on how simple it is to bike and ride with RTS.


Important points to remember:

  • Make sure the bus/vehicle has fully stopped and the Bus Operator sees you before you access the bike rack.
  • Always approach the bus/vehicle from the sidewalk.
  • Place your bike on its kickstand in front of the bus or vehicle.
  • Squeeze the latch in the center of the bike rack to lower it.
  • Place your bike into one of the tire slots. – If there are no other bikes on the rack place your bike into the tire slot closest to the bus.
  • Pull the padded hook out and over one of the bike tires to secure the bike to the rack.
  • Remove any loose items or valuables from your bike and board the bus.
  • When nearing your stop, let the Bus Operator know that you will need to unload your bike. Exit through the front door.
  • To remove the bike, lift the padded hook, remove your bike, and return the rack to the stowed and locked position.
