Did you know that, according to the Department of General Services, the average person loses 13 pounds in the first year of commuting by bike?

Bike to work season is just around the corner. Many of us commute long distances to get to and from our places of work, which means it’s not always feasible to bike to work. However, there are opportunities to use our local bus service, ECO Transit, to help you and your bike get to the places you need to go.

3 things to know

1.      ECO Transit has bike racks on the front of each of its buses and they stay on year-round.

2.      The bike racks on ECO buses can hold two bikes and are available on a first come, first served basis. To use these racks your bike must be lifted and placed into the wheel slots in the rack.

3.      The bike racks cannot be used after dark because they block the headlights of the bus. To ensure you can get home with your bike, make sure you plan around this rule.
