How to Load Your Bike on the Bus

Every TriMet bus is equipped with a bike rack on the front that can hold two bikes. Bikes are not allowed inside buses unless they can collapse to the size of a standard piece of luggage. If you do bring a folding bike on board, make sure it doesn't block the aisle.

Loading Your Bike

  1. Make sure the bus stops completely and the driver acknowledges you before you step in front of the bus. Never approach a stopped bus from the street side, as you cannot safely determine when a driver is about to leave a stop.
  2. Squeeze the handle on the top of the rack and lower it. Place your bike in the rack and place the bar over your front wheel (as close to the frame as possible).
  3. Remove any loose items or valuables from your bike, including panniers, then board the bus and pay your fare.

Unloading

  1. Exit through the front door and let the driver know that you have a bike to remove. Never step in front of the bus until you are sure the driver sees you.
  2. Remove your bike and fold up the rack if it is empty.
  3. Go to the nearest curbside. Never cross in front of the bus, as passing traffic cannot see you.

Demonstration racks

Want to practice first? You can try out a demonstration bike rack at PSU’s Transportation Information Center, located at 1812 SW 6th Ave. in Portland, or at the Community Cycling Center, located at 1700 NE Alberta St. in Portland.
