VéloBus

With RTC bike racks,
you get the best of both worlds! 

Using your bike and the bus makes it easy to get around.

Bike racks are available from May 1 to October 31 on articulated buses at all Métrobus 800, 801, 802, 804, 807 stops.

What you should know

  • Only non-motorized two-wheel bicycles are accepted.
  • Limit of two bicycles per bus.
  • Some children’s bikes are too small for the rack.
  • First come, first served.
  • Your bike rides for free—you only pay for yourself.
  • You are responsible for loading and unloading your bicycle quickly from the front of the bus or the sidewalk side.
  • For safety reasons, bus drivers are not authorized to leave their seats.

Loading your bicycle in 3 easy steps:

  1. If the rack is in the up position, hold your bicycle with one hand and lift the handle with the other to release the lock. Then lower the rack.

2.   Lift your bicycle and position the wheels in the space provided. The first bicycle should be in the space closest to the bus.

 

3.   Hook the support arm as close to the top of your tire as possible without letting it touch the bike frame or fenders.

If someone wants to remove a bike from the rack, wait for them before loading yours..

Removing your bicycle

1. Before your stop, tell the bus driver you need to remove your bicycle and get off via the front door.
2. Lower the support arm to its horizontal position.
3. Remove your bicycle from the rack.
4. If the rack is empty, fold it back up until it locks.
5. Step away and signal to the driver that the way is clear.

Note: If another bicycle is in front of yours when you reach your stop, the driver will ask the owner of the other bicycle to remove it while you get yours.

RTC is not responsible for bicycles that are stolen or damaged during use of this service.

RTC staff may refuse access to cyclists if conditions are unsafe.
