Learn more about bringing your bike on the T by selecting an item from the list below.

All non-electric MBTA buses are equipped with a bike rack that can hold 2 conventional bikes.

Before the bus arrives, remove any bags or loose items from your bike.

When the bus arrives, wait until it comes to a complete stop and let the driver know you’re going to use the bike rack.

Things to Know

The MBTA is not responsible for stolen or damaged bikes.

Always let the driver know that you’ll be loading or unloading the bike rack before walking in front of the bus.

Never crouch down below the driver’s sight line in front of the bus.

Never cross the street in front of the bus with your bike—traffic can’t see around it.
