All GOVA Transit buses have bike racks to transport your bike for free.
Bike racks are located on the front of the bus and can accommodate two bicycles.
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 GOVA Downtown Mobility Hub, 9 Elm Street, Sudbury. Please exit and board the bus at least one stop away.
- Bike racks are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
- A bicycle may be transported on-board 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.
- GOVA 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.

4. Lift the support arm and place it over the wheel.
5. Ensure your bike is securely locked into position and get on the bus.

8. Signal to the bus operator when you are clear of the bus. Make sure you have a clear view of the road before you begin biking.
