BIKE AND RIDE FOR FREE ON BIKE TO WORK DAY

Bicycle commuters ride free on Metro, TANK, BCRTA & CTC on May 17.
Those looking to give commuting by bike a try will have the perfect opportunity on May 17 when transit systems around the Cincinnati region partner to offer free fare for those with a bike.

In celebration of National Bike to Work Day, May 17, bus riders who load a bike onto the bus bike racks will ride for FREE on Metro, the Transit Authority of Northern Kentucky (TANK), Butler County Regional Transit Authority (BCRTA) and Clermont Transportation Connection (CTC).

The day will showcase just how easy it is to bike and ride every day.

All Metro, TANK and BCRTA buses, as well as many CTC 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 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 here and on TANK’s website here.
