1. Remove any loose items such as water bottles, saddlebags or carriers from your bike before the bus arrives.
2. Wait for the bus to come to a complete stop. Tell the driver that you are going to load your bike onto the bike rack. Lower the rack if necessary by squeezing the rack handle.
3. If the rack is full, it is possible to bring your bike on board if the vehicle is low-floor (wheelchair accessible), the wheelchair spot is unoccupied and the driver tells you it is safe to do so.
4. Load your bike from the curb-side.
5. Lift your bike into the rack. If you are the first bike, use the space furthest from the front of the bus. Racks are available on a first come, first serve basis.
6. Once the bike is fully seated in the wheel wells, rotate the lever upwards to secure the wheel lock on the front tire. Do this in a safe but quick manner. Do not use locks or chains to secure your bike to the rack.
7. Sit near the front of the bus to monitor your bike.
