BIKES ON BUSES
|Ride Your Bike, Ride San Joaquin RTD
RTD passengers have a convenient way to get around town and help the environment at the same time. You can load your bike on easy-to-use bike racks on RTD Metro and Intercity buses, and in the cargo area under Interregional buses. This form of multi-modal transportation makes it easier for you to get to your bus stop and your final destination.
Simple instructions are posted directly on the racks, mounted on the front of the bus. You can load or unload your bike in less than 30 seconds. Two bikes can be held at once and are kept in place by a spring-loaded clamp. The racks hold most wheel bikes. Each bike can be loaded and unloaded independently. The bikes in the rack do not touch each other, the bus or other vehicles.
Prepare your bike for loading
Always load and unload your bicycle from the curb side or directly in front of the bus –never from the street side

Unloading your bike:

Lift your bike out of the rack
Step away from the bus with your bike
