Bike Racks

Attaching a bike

Bike racks combine the flexibility of cycling with the speed and long-haul ability of transit. 

Take advantage of the over 3,000 acres of green space, over 20 parks, on-road bikeways and off-road multi-use trails across our community.

Choose your bike to commute, run errands, or enjoy an afternoon with your family. It's always a smart ride for whatever you need to do, plus you can forget about gas prices and parking.

Easy On:

Remove loose items like bottles or pumps before the bus arrives. 

Releasing the rackIndicate to the bus operator you wish to load your bike.*

  1. Squeeze the handle to release the rack and slowly lower it.
  2. Lift your bike on to the rack and fit the wheels in the front and rear slots.
  3. Pull the support arm up and over the front tire to secure your bike.

Easy Off:
Leave the bus through the front door and tell the driver you are unloading your bike.*

  1. Pull the support arm out and over the front tire to release.
  2. Lift your bike and raise the rack to the upright position.
  3. Step away from the bus and signal to the driver that you are clear of the bus.
Removing a bike* You must load and unload your bike without assistance from the bus driver.

How It Works:

  4. Loading and unloading your bike is permitted at all stops, and always from the curbside.

Travelling Across The Border:

Effective October 31, 2017, bike racks will be operational on the tunnel bus between Windsor and Detroit.  The new service will provide cyclists with a safe and convenient way to explore what each city has to offer.  The licence to carry bikes does come with some stipulations that riders need to keep in mind:

  • All bicycles entering the United States or Canada must be accompanied by an owner or authorized individual.
  • Bicycles making entry to the United States or Canada will remain on the bus rack during the inspection process unless removal is requested by a Customs Officer.
  • Bicycle bags or pouches will be removed and brought into the customs office for inspection, unless the Customs Officer determines it is not feasible or prudent to do so.
  • The bicycles of individuals found to be inadmissible will be removed from the bicycle rack and remain with the owner or authorized individual until they return to the originating country.

Reading The Schedule:

Accessible and bike rack service is portrayed with the universal accessible icon on the schedules, unless noted at top of schedule that all trips are accessible.
