How to Load Your Bike on a Bus  

Rack-N-Roll

You can load your bike in these four easy steps:

Step 1 Image  

1.  Lower the Rack

To lower the rack, grasp and squeeze the handle with one hand while supporting the bike with your other hand.  Slowly lower the rack.

2.  Place Bike on the Rack

Lift the bike into the rack, placing the wheels in the wheel wells.  The first bike loaded should be placed in the position closest to the bus.

The bike's front wheel is in the proper position when it is facing the support arm.

5.  Remove Your Bike

To remove your bike from the rack, simply pull the support arm handle out and lower it down over the bike’s front tire, lift the bike out of the rack, and return the rack to the upright position.

It makes no difference which position your bike is in. You can easily remove your bike from the rear position even if another bike is in the front position.

 

Note: Loose items that could come off your bike while the bus is in motion should be removed before you board the bus. Take these items with you inside the bus.
