Now you can take your bike with you! Polk Transit buses feature easy
snap bike racks on each bus front. There’s no extra charge—just
snap and go to take your bike with you.
Bike racks hold up to two single-seat, two-wheeled bikes at a time, and are
designed for bikes 16" or bigger. Always wait on the curb to load or unload
your bike. As the bus approaches, have your bike ready to:
Pull down the rack (on the bus front), with one hand. If the rack is already
down and another bike is in place, use the second set of wheel racks. Each
bus holds two bikes. If the racks are full, wait for the next available bus.
If only one bike is being loaded, put it in the rack nearest the bus.
The bike support arm is in the down position when not in use. Swing the
arm up and into position over the front bike wheel. Make sure the support
arm is resting on your bike’s tire and not on the fender or frame. A
spring pulls the arm back to keep your bike is secure.
Tell the Bus Operator that you are going to remove your bike, then exit
through the front door of the bus.
Remove your bike by releasing the support arm from the front tire. Then
just lift it out of the rack.
If there are no other bikes on the rack, please return the rack to the
