A great way to get in shape and protect the environment…it’s The Current Bike Program, allowing you to transport your bike on our buses to travel even further. It’s a good-for-you remedy that can help to ease your commuting frustrations, reduce your gas bill, improve air quality and keep you healthy!
Bike racks are mounted on the front of all The Current buses. Each rack holds two bikes and supports most wheel and frame sizes — even children’s bikes. However, we cannot carry motorized bikes.
Loading Your Bike
- Be prepared for the arrival of the bus in order to minimize delays in service. Prepare to mount your bike from the curb side.
- Remove water bottles, air pumps, or other items that could slip off your bike.
- Let the operator know you’re using the rack. For safety reasons, the operator may not leave the bus to assist you, but he or she can answer your questions.
- Release the rack by gently pulling up on the center handle. Unfold the rack.
- If you are the first to mount your bike: use the slot nearest the bus, making sure the handlebars face curb side. If you are mounting the second bike on the forward slot: make sure the handlebars face the road.
- Lift the support arm up and over the front tire and secure it.
Unloading Your Bike
- As you near your stop, tell the driver you’ll be unloading your bike.
- Raise and lower the support arm from your tire, and lift your bike from the rack.
- If there are two bikes on the rack and yours is mounted nearest the bus: unload it by rolling the wheels off the rack and toward the curb. If yours is the only bike on the rack: please fold the rack up after unloading. The rack will automatically lock into place; however, we ask that you double check that it is secured since the operator cannot see it.
- Move from the travel portion of the roadway, and signal the driver when you and your bike have cleared the bus’ path.
