Grand Valley Transit (GVT) provides bike racks on every bus for your convenience. Ride the bus to your destination for the same low price you would normally pay, and your bike rides for free!
Passengers are responsible for loading and unloading their own bicycles and Grand Valley Transit (GVT) is not responsible for any damages. We are providing these instructions to assist you. Bus drivers do not assist with the loading or unloading of bikes, therefore it is important that you read these instructions on how to load and unload your bike carefully.
For more information on using bicycling linked with transit for your commute, view the Bike Route Map .
Each bus is equipped with a rack that can carry up to two bikes. The racks are conveniently located on the front of the bus and can accommodate two-wheel bicycles with wheel spans of 16 inches in diameter or larger. Space is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Motorized or tandem bikes are not permitted.
Only the bicycle’s tires come in contact with the rack, thereby reducing the possibility of damage to your bike’s frame.
Caution should be taken when loading and unloading your bicycle. Grand Valley Transit (GVT) is not responsible for any damage that may be caused while your bike is being loaded or unloaded, while it is in the rack and the bus is in motion.
- Utilize the bike racks at your own risk.
- Notify the bus driver before loading a bike.
- Load and unload bikes from the side of the bus nearest the curb.
- Exit the bus from the front door and advise the bus driver that you will be unloading a bike.
