Bike rack rules

  • It is your responsibility to load, unload and secure the bike without help from the bus driver.  All riders use the bike racks at their own risk.
  • Due to space limitations, you cannot load or unload your bicycle 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, or for lost or stolen bicycles.

How to load your bike onto the bike rack

  • Before the bus arrives, remove any non-permanent fixtures from your bike. 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. The bike rack is located on the front of the bus.
