Bicycling

ABQ RIDE provides bike racks on the front of buses and bike racks inside of ART buses so getting there easier than ever for cyclists. Follow these simple instructions and you and your bike will be riding in no time.

 
How to take your bike with you


ART:


Step 1: Make sure there’s room on the ART bus. If the bus is full, you may have to wait for the next bus
Step 2: Roll your bike directly on board through the back door. Be mindful of other passengers
Step 3: If there is room in the bike trough, pick your bike up and place the bottom wheel into the trough
Step 4: Make sure the top wheel is secured into place
Step 5: At your stop, carefully remove your bike from the bike rack and exit the bus. Always be mindful of other passengers


Regular Bus:


Step 1: Once the bus has stopped, make sure there is room for your bike. If the rack is full, take the next bus
Step 2: If the bike rack is folded up against the front of the bus, pull the handle up to release, and lower the rack into its working position
Step 3.  If your bike is first, load with the handlebars toward the curb, and the wheels in the slots nearest the bus. If your bike is second, load with the handlebars opposite.
Step 3: Pull the hook out and over the front wheel, and release it gently. Remove your water bottle, pump, etc., before boarding the bus.
Step 4: Raise the spring loaded bar up and over the front tire and place it on top of the tire, close to the bike frame.
Step 5: At your stop, let the driver know you need to remove your bike and then exit the front of the bus. Remove your bike, put the rack up, and then wave to let the driver know you and your bike are clear.

Tip: Don’t forget to grab your bike. It happens more often than you’d think!
