River Valley Metro’s entire bus fleet is equipped with bike racks.  It is easy to load and unload your bike. Just…lowerliftlatch!

Loading Your Bike:

  • Lower – Squeeze the handle & pull down to release the folded bike rack.
  • Lift – Lift your bike onto the bike rack, fitting wheels into the slots.  Front wheel slots are labeled.  Load your bike in the rack nearest the bus first, if vacant.
  • Latch – Pull and release the support arm over the top of the front tire.  Make sure the support arm is resting on the tire, not the fender or the frame.
  • Board the bus

Unloading Your Bike:

  • Before exiting the bus, notify the operator you will be removing your bicycle.
  • Pull the support arm off of the tire.  Move the support arm down and out of the way.  Lift your bike off of the rack.
  • Return the rack to the upright position, if it is empty.
  • Move quickly to the curb.
