Bus n’ Bike

Every GRT bus has a bike rack so passengers can combine cycling with the convenience of public transit. Each rack holds two bikes of most sizes and styles (non-motorized, two-wheel bikes only, please).

If the bike rack is full, take your bike on the bus and find an appropriate area to place your bike.  If the bus is full, you will not be able to board the bus with your bike and will have to wait for the next bus.

Take advantage of more than 500 kilometres of on-road bikeways and off-road multi-use trails across Waterloo Region. Choose your bike to commute, run errands, visit friends, or enjoy an afternoon with your family. It’s always a smart ride.

Using the bus bike rack

Easy on

  • Remove loose items like bottles or pumps before the bus arrives. Tell the operator you want to load your bike. You must load and unload the bike without assistance.
  • Squeeze the handle to release the rack and slowly lower it.
  • Lift your bike on to the rack and fit the wheels in the front and rear slots.
  • Pull the support arm up and over the front tire to secure your bike.

Easy off

  • Leave the bus by the front door. Tell the operator you are unloading your bike.
  • Pull the support arm out and over the front tire to release.
  • Lift your bike and raise the rack to the upright position.
  • Step away from the bus and signal to the operator you are clear of the bus.
