Place Your Bike On The Rack
Place your bike on the rack in the location closet to the bus with the with the front wheel and the handlebars towards the curb. If a bike is already on the rack, the front wheel and the handlebars should be facing street side, away from the curb.
Close The Rack
Pull out the curved spring-loaded swing-arm, lift up over the front tire, and place the hook as close as possible to the bicycle’s head tube.
Upon Bus Exit, Notify The Driver
Upon exiting the bus, please exit the bus out of the front and alert the driver that you will be removing your bike from the rack.
