Bike and Ride the Bus, Get a Free Ride on Bike-To-Work Day

Metro and TANK partner to offer fare-free rides for those busing with their bikes on May 17.
CINCINNATI — Those looking to try commuting by bike will have the perfect opportunity on Friday, May 17, when transit systems around the region partner to offer free fare rides for those busing with their bikes.

In celebration of National Bike-to-Work Day on Friday, May 17, bus riders who load a bike onto their bus’ bike rack will ride for FREE on Metro and the Transit Authority of Northern Kentucky (TANK).

The day will highlight just how easy it is to bike and ride every day. All buses are equipped with front-loading secure bike racks, and each rack accommodates two bikes. Bikes are not permitted on board buses unless they are foldable and can fit under a seat.

Breakfast on the Bridge
Metro and TANK are also proud to sponsor the 2024 Breakfast on the Bridge, which will take place Friday morning from 7 to 9 a.m. on the Newport approach to the Purple People Bridge. Coinciding with Bike-to-Work Day, the event, hosted by Tri-State Trails, is the signature event of Bike Month. Metro will have a demo front-of-bus bike rack on hand.

More information on how to bike and ride, as well as a video explaining how to use the bus bike racks, can be found on Metro’s website and on TANK’s website.
