Lethbridge cyclists can enjoy the convenience of biking and busing on all Lethbridge Transit routes.

There's no additional cost to use the bike rack.
They are available on a first-come first serve basis.

Worried that your fat tires won't fit?  Have a look or give it a shot next time you see a bus stopped.  You would be surprised that even your downhill bike can fit!



Travel Tips

  • Before the bus arrives, get your bike ready for loading by removing any loose objects like water bottles, pumps and locks, that could fall of while the bus is in motion.
  • Loading and unloading your bike takes approximately 20 seconds.
  • Lethbridge Transit is not responsible for lost, stolen or damages incurred or caused by or to bicycles.
  • A bus operator may refuse a cyclist transportation due to unsafe conditions:
    • If a child seat or luggage carrier on a bike interferes with visibility.
    • If a bike won't fit on a rack.
    • While a majority of bicycles can be accommodated on the bike racks, some large or small bicycles may not fit.

Simple to Use

  • A cyclist is responsible for properly securing their bike.
  • Always load and unload your bike from the front or curbside of the bus.
  • For safety reasons, a bus operator cannot leave the bus to assist you but will provide verbal instruction upon request.
  • If in doubt, refer to the instruction decals conveniently located on the bicycle racks.

Loading

  • Indicate to the operator you'll be loading your bike.
  • If a rack is empty, hold your bike with one hand, squeeze rack handle to release latch, then lower.
  • Lift bike onto rack, placing wheels into proper wheel slots.
    Raise and pull support arm out and over front tire to secure the bike in place.

Unloading

  • Be Ready to Depart before reaching your destination, inform the operator that you will be unloading your bike.
  • Use front door to exit bus.
  • Raise and pull the support arm out and down over the tire to release it.
  • Lift bike from rack. (if rack is empty, fold up rack to lock position.)
  • Step away from bus and signal to the operator you are clear from the bus.
