WOOSH! Transit buses are equipped with bicycle racks that can be used year-round on all routes. Two bikes can be stored at one time while the owners ride on the bus. There is no extra charge for this service.

10-Step Guide to Loading and Unloading Your Bicycle

  1. Before loading your bike, remove any items that might fall off. As the bus approaches, have your bike ready to load.
  2. Let the driver know that you’re loading your bike. The driver cannot get off of the bus to help you for safety reasons. However, the driver can give you additional instructions.
  3. For your own safety, always load and unload your bike from the passenger side of the bus, or, the side closest to the curb, rather than from the driver’s side.
  4. Pull down to release the folded bike rack – you can do this with one hand so that you can hold your bike with your other.
  5. Lift the bike onto the rack and fit the wheels into the appropriate slots. Each slot is labeled to let you know where your front and rear wheels belong. Remember to load your bike in the outside slot first.
  6. Raise and release the support arm over the top of the front tire. Ensure that the support arm is resting on your bike tire and NOT on your bike fender or frame.
  7. When you get off, let the driver know that you need to unload your bike.
  8. Raise the support arm off your bike. Move the arm down and out of your way.
  9. Lift your bike out of the rack.
  10. Fold up the bike rack if there is no other bike in it.

The Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo is not responsible for damages incurred or caused by bicycles on Transit property.
