Rack and Roll
Greater Sudbury Transit riders can transport bicycles on the following routes for no additional charge:
- Howey/Moonlight Route 101,
- Coniston Route 103,
- Ramsey View/Algonquin Route 182,

Buses travelling these routes are equipped with a rack on the front to accommodate two bicycles.
It is the rider’s responsibility to load, unload and secure the bike without assistance from the bus operator. All riders use the bike racks at their own risk.
Due to space limitations, the racks cannot be used at the Downtown Transit Terminal. Please exit and board the bus at least one stop away from the terminal.
Bike racks are available on a first-come, first-served basis. A bicycle may be transported onboard a bus at the driver’s discretion. The comfort and safety of other passengers cannot be compromised and the bicycle cannot block the aisle.
Only non-motorized, single-seated, two-wheeled bikes are allowed on the racks.
A driver may refuse access to a cyclist due to unsafe conditions or if the bicycle has any items on it that could block the driver’s vision or cause a distraction.
Greater Sudbury Transit is not responsible for damages incurred or caused by or to bicycles, however caused, or for lost or stolen bicycles.
To load your bike:
(You have the option of clicking on the following images to view in large format.)
Before the bus arrives, remove any non-permanent fixtures. This includes water bottles.
Alert the driver that you will be loading your bicycle. Approach the bus from the curb. Do not step into oncoming traffic to load your bike.
Hold your bike with one hand. Use the other to squeeze the handle and lower the rack.
Lift or roll your bike into the rack. Place the wheels in the tracks as indicated.
Lift the support arm and place it over the wheel.
Ensure your bike is securely locked into position.
When leaving the bus:
Tell the bus operator you will be unloading your bicycle and exit from the front door.
Fold up the rack to the locked position if no one else is using it.
Signal to the bus operator when you are clear of the bus. Wait for the bus to pass for a clear view of the road before cycling on your way.
