Riding your bicycle to Golden Gate Transit is a fun and healthy way to commute. All Golden Gate Transit 40- and 60-foot buses are equipped with exterior three-position bike racks at the front of the bus and our 45-foot buses (numbered in the 900s) are equipped with underbelly bike racks that fit up to two bikes. Electric and gas-powered bicycles are NOT accepted on Golden Gate Transit buses. Electric scooters are allowed on Golden Gate Transit buses, but the scooter must be powered off and the handle retracted for easy storage.
The following are tips when bringing your bike on Golden Gate Transit.
- Make eye contact with driver when using bike racks.
- Always wear a helmet when riding your bike.
- Cyclists share the same rights and are subject to the same responsibilities as other vehicle operators.
- Ride on designated bike routes where possible.
- Be visible! Wear highly visible clothing during the day and a reflective vest or clothing at night. Always ride with a light on your bike at night. Be careful to avoid blind spots of buses, trucks and other vehicles.
- Always stay out of the dangerous "door zone" by riding at least 3 feet from parked cars on the street.
