All Trinity Transit buses are equipped with bike racks.  Passengers are responsible for loading, securing and unloading their bicycle.  Please be prepared to load and unload bicycles quickly.  Below we have listed four easy steps to safely load your bike on the bike rack.  If you have questions about loading your bicycle, please ask the drivers.

 

1. When the bus comes to a complete stop, signal the driver to let him/her know that you will be loading a bike.
2. Approach the bus from the curb and lower the rack towards you by squeezing the center lever with one hand while supporting the bike with the other hand.
3. After lowering the rack, place the bike into one of the wheel wells. The rack only contacts the tires.  Wheel wells are completely independent of each other.
4. After the bike is securely in place within the wheel well, pull the support arm –>Out & Up over your front tire all the way to the bike frame, then allow support arm to lower and lock wheel in place.
Unloading your bike:
  1. When the bus approaches the stop, inform the driver that you will be removing your bike.
  2. Approach the front of the bus from the curbside.  Raise the support arm off the bike tire.
  3. When the support arm is off, lift the bike out of the wheel well.
  4. Once the bike is out of the wheel well, fold up the rack if no other bikes are on the rack.
