Bike & Ride on Transit

All Metrorail stations and Metrobus Park & Ride lots are equipped with bicycle racks.

BikeLids, enabling you to secure your bike using your own padlock and additionally offering covered protection, are available free on a first-come, first-served basis at Metrorail stations and other locations.

  • On Metrobus

    • Buses are equipped with bicycle racks that are attached to the front of the bus. If your bus arrives with the rack occupied, missing, or out of service, please wait for the next bus.
    • Prepare your bike for loading by removing loose items before the bus arrives.
    • Wait until the bus comes to a complete stop before attempting to mount your bicycle on the rack.
    • To mount your bicycle on the rack, squeeze the silver rack handle up to release the latch. Carefully lower the rack.
    • Place your bicycle wheels into the slots labeled “front” and “rear.” If yours is the first bike on the rack, mount it in the slots nearest to the bus.
    • To secure the bike, raise the support arm over the front wheel as far as possible. Be sure the arm rests on the tire, not the fender.
    • Once you have secured your bicycle, board the bus and pay your fare with cash or by tapping your loaded EASY Card or EASY Ticket.
    • Sit or stand near the front of the bus to watch your bicycle during your trip.
    • When you arrive at your destination, tell the bus operator you want to remove your bicycle from the rack before exiting the bus through the front door.
    • To unload, release the support arm and lift the bicycle from the rack. If the rack is empty, squeeze the silver handle to return the rack to the upright or closed position.
  • On Metrorail

    • Enter the station by tapping your loaded EASY Card or EASY Ticket at the wheelchair-accessible gate.
    • Always use the elevator to get to and from the platform level.
    • Wait for the train away from the platform’s yellow-tiled edge.
    • Walk your bike into any Metrorail car. Use the designated areas for bike and luggage storage.
    • Do not place or store your bicycle in the spaces reserved for passengers in wheelchairs.
    • Allow passengers without bicycles to exit the train first.
