Bikes on the bus

Picture1

the-RIDEAll of the RIDE blue buses are equipped with bike racks on the front of the buses. These racks hold two bikes each, and they’re a good way to get home if you have a mechanical problem on your ride (or the weather turns nasty on you). The racks are similar to those used by numerous transportation systems around the country, and you can see how easy it is to load a bike on the bus’ bike rack in this 39-second video from San Francisco.
