Bike Racks

  Bike on Rack  

All of our new buses now include bike racks. All racks can hold up to two bikes at a time. Prior to using one of our bike racks, please read the information below:

Important info about using our bike racks:

  1. Use the racks at your own risk. UConn assumes no responsibility for bikes that are lost, stolen, damaged or left on racks.
  2. Always tell the bus driver that you will be loading or unloading a bike on the rack
  3. For your safety, always approach the bus and load your bike from the curb side
  4. Bicyclists should load and unload their own bikes. For safety reasons, our drivers will not be able to help you.
  5. Any loose items or items that may block a driver’s view must be removed from your bike before loading.
