BIKE AND RIDE FOR FREE ON METRO, TANK, CTC AND BCRTA ON FRIDAY, MAY 18
Bicycle commuters ride free on Bike to Work Day.
Commuting by bike in the Greater Cincinnati region will be easier than ever on May 18, when cyclists with their bike can commute for FREE thanks to a partnership between Metro, the Transit Authority of Northern Kentucky (TANK), Clermont Transportation Connection (CTC) and Butler County Regional Transit Authority (BCRTA) in celebration of National Bike to Work Day.
The day will showcase just how easy it is to bike and ride by offering free fare on May 18 for riders who store their bike on the bus bike racks while riding.
All Metro, TANK, CTC and BCRTA buses are equipped with front-loading secure bike racks. Each rack accommodates two bikes. Bikes are not allowed on board buses unless they are foldable and can fit under a seat.
Metro and TANK have been recognized as “Bike Friendly Destinations” since 2011, providing advocacy and infrastructure improvements to support bicycling for employees and riders.
More information and tips on biking and riding can be found on Metro’s website here and on TANK’s website here.
