Bike & Ride

Overview

Bike and Ride
You can catch the MET at most corners (before the intersection) where it is safe to stop or at any MET Bus Stop sign, or Bus Bench. A simple wave when the bus is a half block away lets the driver know to stop for you and your bicycle. Before the bus arrives, remove items like knapsacks, tire pumps, and other items that could cause a hazard or fall off.

General Precautions & Tips

  • For safety reasons, MET drivers are not allowed to help you load or unload your bicycle.
  • Always load and unload your bike from the curb side.
  • The bike rack is made to hold two bikes. Bicycles are not allowed inside the bus. Bike and Ride
  • Children under the age of 14 may use the bike racks only if an older bike rider is available to assist in the loading and unloading of the child’s bike.
  • Motorized bikes are not allowed
  • Bikes with children seats, large carriers, or other attachments considered hazardous are not allowed.
  • MET Transit is not responsible for damages incurred or caused by or to bicycles on MET Transit bicycle racks.
  • You are responsible for properly securing your bike to the rack.

Loading Your Bicycle
  • Simply grab the handle bar on the front of the bike rack and pull up to release and then lower the rack towards you to unfold it.
  • Lift your bike onto the rack, fitting the tires into the wheel slots. Please use the inside slot first.
  • Pull the support arm out and up over the front tire to secure the bike in place.

Unloading Your Bicycle

  • Before you get off the bus, tell the driver you want to unload your bike.
  • Pull the support arm out and down over the tire to release it from the tire.
  • Lift your bike out of the rack and onto the curb. If the rack is empty, fold up the rack to the locked position. Stand clear of the bus.
  • A wave to the MET driver tells the driver you are finished unloading your bike.
