All Link Transit fixed route buses are equipped with bike racks to make it easy to take your bike with you. This allows you to extend your travel past where the bus might take you, to use your bike for mid-day errands, or to return home at night. It is easy and there is no extra charge to take your bike.
Just a heads up though, the bike racks on Routes 20, 21, and 22 hold three* bikes, and buses operating on all other routes carry two bikes. During the summer, there are sometimes capacity issues, so it is best to try to board with your bike at the beginning of the route, either at Columbia Station or at the other end, where ever that may be. Bikes cannot be brought inside buses, so please have an alternate plan in the event there is no room on the buses.
There are two first-come first served bike storage units available at the Olds Station Park and Ride.
*There may be a trip sometime during the day on these routes where a bus with two bike capacity is used.
You may load and unload your bike at any Link Transit bus stop.
The racks are easy to load and very quick. For a short video on how to load your bike, click here
- Battery-powered e-assist bikes are accepted as long as the bike and its attachments do not exceed the weight limit of 50 pounds per rack slot. If your battery is removable you can carry it onto the bus to reduce the bike’s weight.
- 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 GAS-POWERED bikes allowed.
- Bikes with child carriers or other bulky attachments cannot be accommodated because of limited space.
- 30 and 35 foot buses (Wenatchee and East Wenatchee routes) can accommodate 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. 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.
