USING BIKE ON BUS
The Space Coast Area Transit system provides bicycle racks on all buses operating on fixed routes throughout Brevard County. Each rack holds up to two (2) full-size bikes, positioned on the front of the bus. The bike rider signals the bus driver letting him/her know the bike needs to be loaded and then deploys the bike rack, loading the bike. Biking is great exercise and wonderful for the environment! Space Coast Area Transit does not accept liability for damage to bikes.
WHAT IF THE BICYCLE RACK IS FULL?
If the rack is full when the bus pulls up, the driver, at his/her discretion may allow the bike to be carried on board the bus by the passenger. The driver’s approval depends upon the number of passengers and the number of wheelchairs or scooters that are aboard the bus. If permitted on board, the bike must be secured by the passenger. Should the driver not allow the bike on board, the bicyclist will have to wait until the next bus arrives. This guidance is provided to safeguard the passengers.
4 EASY STEPS TO LOADING AND UNLOADING YOUR BIKE
Loading your bike only takes seconds. Pull down the rack in front of the bus. If the rack is already full, wait for another bus or ask the driver if you may bring your bike on the bus.
- Place your bike wheels into the slots labeled “front” and “rear”. The first bike mounted on the rack goes in the space nearest the front of the bus.
- Raise the bike support as far as possible. Be sure it rests on the front tire, not the fender, and holds the bike securely. The spring in the arm will keep your bike in place.
- To unload, release the support arm and lift the bike from the rack. Restore the rack to the “up” position, if there is no other bike on board. Happy biking!
- Please note that Space Coast Area Transit does not accept liability for damage to bikes.
