Did you know that all Metro buses are equipped with bike racks? You can take your bike on any bus to get to a different area that you can explore on your bicycle.

Bicycles must be transported on these racks, and are not allowed inside of the bus. Fat tires do not fit on the rack. For everyone’s safety, electric bikes or e-bikes are not allowed due to weight restrictions. Overloading the racks can cause heavy bicycles like e-bikes to tilt or even fall.

For full details on how to load and unload your bicycle, and for more information (including a video), please visit Madison Metro.
