Buses offer free rides for bicyclists during National Bike Month
May 8, 2012
May is National Bike Month, and to mark the occasion, bicyclists loading a bike onto local buses can ride for free.
Bicyclists using King County Metro Transit and Sound Transit ride free from May 14-18.
The offer applies to any Metro Transit bus or ST Express bus operated by Metro Transit, including routes 554, 555 and 556 from Issaquah.
Each bus has three spaces on a bike rack available on a first-come, first-served basis.
If the bus’ bike rack is full, cyclists should be prepared to wait for the next bus or consider leaving the bike parked in a bike rack at a transit facility.
Many Metro Transit and Sound Transit facilities also offer bike lockers.
