Linx Bike and Ride

Bike racks are available on all Linx buses. They're free, easy to use and have instruction labels to help you load your bike, but before you use the bike rack please familiarize yourself with the instructions below.

Before the bus arrives, please remove any loose items from your bike such as water bottle or bike lock. Wait for the bus at the designated bus stop. Alert the bus operator that you want to load or unload your bike. Allow other passengers to unload their bike before loading yours. If there are no other bicycles on the rack, use the space closest to the bus.

Loading the rack:

While holding your bike with one hand, squeeze the handle to release the latch and lower the rack. Place the wheels in the wheel slots (a label tells you where the front wheel goes). Steady the bike, and raise the support arm over the front tire as high as it will go, but not over the frame or fender. Note: You are responsible for properly securing your bike to the rack. Please do not chain or lock your bike to the rack.

Unloading the rack:

To unload your bike, raise the support arm off the tire and move it down and out of the way. Lift your bike from the rack. If the rack is empty, and no one else is waiting to load a bike, fold up the rack until it locks in place. Carry your bike off the roadway to the sidewalk. Signal to the operator that you are clear of the bus.
