All full size Link buses are equipped with bike racks. These racks each carry two bikes, of all sizes and frame styles, except tandems. And the racks will be on the buses year round, so no matter what the weather, you can take your bike with you. Bikes can be loaded independently of each other.
BikeLink is the best way to link all your trips together. Bicycling is great fun and wonderful exercise. But sometimes there are long distances between you and where you want to go. That's why Link provides bicycle racks on all routes, including those serving Wenatchee and East Wenatchee. You can take your bike to work with you on the bus to use for recreation at lunch or after work, or to ride home. If the weather should turn unfavorable, you can count on BikeLink to get you and your bike home at the end of the day.
The BikeLink service is also a great way to get to and from work or for recreation. With so many great riding opportunities in our area, BikeLink can help you get out and enjoy the scenery, while getting some great exercise. We hope that you will use this service on a regular basis and take advantage of the many ways that a bike and bus can make getting from here to there a whole lot of fun.
Where to Load Your Bike
You may load and unload your bike at any Link Transit bus stop.
- Remember - safety always comes first. Never step into the street side of the bus.
- Have your bike ready to go as the bus approaches.
- Remove water bottles, pumps or other items that might fall off your bike during a trip.
- Your bicycle must be no larger than 80 inches long or 48 inches high. No motorized bikes allowed.
- Bikes with child carriers or other bulky attachments cannot be accomodated because of limited space.
- 30 and 35 foot buses (Wenatchee and East Wenatchee routes) can accomodate two bicycles on a rack. All 40 foot buses can carry three bikes. These are on Routes 20, 21, and 22. However, occasionally a 30 foot bus is used on these routes so only two bikes can be carried on these trips. Space is always on a first-come basis.
- Riders are also responsible for loading and unloading their own bikes. If necessary, a bus driver can give you assistance. Bikes are not allowed inside the bus.
- Link is not responsible for any damages incurred to or caused by bicycles on transit system property, and is not liable for any damage to bicycles that are not loaded properly.
