Bike racks on buses have space for at least two bikes and are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Dutchess County Public Transit assumes no responsibility for bikes that are lost, stolen, damaged, or left on racks.

Riders are responsible for loading and unloading their bicycles.

How to use bus bike racks

  1. As the bus pulls up, make eye contact with the driver to signal that you want to load your bike
  2. If the rack is in its upright position, release it by squeezing the center handle and carefully lower it down
  3. Remove all loose items from your bike
  4. Load your bike into one of the available slots
  5. Pull the support arm up and out and hook it securely over the top of your front wheel
  6. When exiting the bus, tell the driver you are unloading your bike.
  7. If you are the last person to unload a bike, please return the rack to its upright position.
