Bicycles

Bikes and buses go great together. It’s easy and convenient to load your bike onto one of our front-loading racks and there’s no additional fare. So whether you’re on your way to work, school, or shopping, bring your bike on the bus and get there in style.

We maintain a guide to safe and effective biking and a list of bike rack locations around Sonoma County.

Loading your Bike

All SCT buses are equipped with racks that can fit either two or three bikes. Riders are responsible for loading and unloading their bicycles. After your bus pulls up, first make eye contact with the driver, then proceed to load your bike from the front of the bus.

  1. Squeeze and hold the release handle located on top of the bike rack, then lower the rack.
  2. Load your bike into one of the bike slots.
  3. Extend the wheel lock over the front tire.
  4. Before boarding the bus, remove all loose items from your bike
  5. Don’t forget your bike! When you get off, tell the driver you’re taking your bike off the rack.

It’s just fine to ask your driver for instructions on how the rack works.

 

Sonoma County Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee

Joining the all-volunteer committee as a member or an occasional attendee is a great way to help improve the county for biking and walking.
