Bikes On Buses
Bring your bike along for the ride on any bus for a unique transit experience.
All Pierce Transit and Sound Transit buses have racks that hold bikes. Use of them is at the risk of the cyclist. On Pierce Transit local service, when bike racks are full it is up to the driver whether a bike may be brought onboard. It depends on passenger loads and the effect on the safety of passengers. For details about bikes on Sound Transit buses or trains pick up a copy of ST’s Ride the Wave transit guide, or visit the bike section of Sound Transit’s website.
Cyclists are responsible for handling and assuring the security of their bikes, and must hold them throughout their trip. Your transit operator has the authority to ask you to take your bicycle off the bus should the bus become too crowded.
Bikes & Bus Stops
Please don’t lock your bike to a bus stop post. Bus operators use the posts to know where to stop. A locked bike can interfere with boarding and deboarding of passengers.
Bike lockers are a great way to keep your bike safe and secure if you decide to leave it behind when you catch the bus! For a $50 deposit and $10 per month rental fee, you can be sure your faithful friend will be there to greet you on your return, unaffected by rain, snow - or worse. Call 253.581.8000 for details.
