Bike Racks

Bike racks combine the flexibility of cycling with the speed and long-haul ability of transit.

Easy On:

  1. Remove loose items like bottles or pumps before the bus arrives.
  2. Indicate to the bus operator you wish to load your bike.
  3. Squeeze the handle to release the rack and slowly lower it.
  4. Lift your bike on to the rack and fit the wheels in the front and rear slots.
  5. Pull the support arm up and over the front tire to secure your bike.

Easy Off:

  1. Leave the bus through the front door and tell the driver you are unloading your bike.
  2. Pull the support arm out and over the front tire to release.
  3. Lift your bike and raise the rack to the upright position.
  4. Step away from the bus and signal to the driver that you are clear of the bus.
Note: You must load and unload your bike without assistance from the bus driver.

How It Works:

  1. Bike racks are located on the front of fully accessible buses.
  2. There is no extra charge to use the bike rack, just your regular bus fare.
  3. Bikes are not allowed inside the bus and may only be used on the exterior bike rack.
  4. Each rack holds two bikes and available on a first come, first serve basis.
  5. Loading and unloading your bike is permitted at all stops, and always from the curbside.
  6. Sit on the bus in an area where you can keep an eye on your bike.
  7. Non-motorized, two-wheeled bikes only.
  8. Transit Windsor is not responsible for personal injury or theft, loss of, or damage to bikes on buses.

Travelling Across The Border:

Bike racks are operational on the tunnel bus between Windsor and Detroit. The licence to carry bikes does come with some stipulations that riders need to keep in mind:

  • All bicycles entering the United States or Canada must be accompanied by an owner or authorized individual.
  • Bicycles making entry to the United States or Canada will remain on the bus rack during the inspection process unless removal is requested by a Customs Officer.
  • Bicycle bags or pouches will be removed and brought into the customs office for inspection, unless the Customs Officer determines it is not feasible or prudent to do so.
  • The bicycles of individuals found to be inadmissible will be removed from the bicycle rack and remain with the owner or authorized individual until they return to the originating country.
