Take Your Wheels On The Shuttle

Shuttles are cycle-friendly. Most University Shuttles have racks on the front that hold up to two bicycles. If you wish to use the bike rack, signal the driver that you are going to the front of the bus. You’re responsible for loading and unloading your bicycle but it’s a convenient way to get around town when you need to, or want to add exercise to your commute. (See the Transportation and Parking’s Bikes On Shuttles website for handy tips for loading and unloading your bicycle from a shuttle bus.)
