We think the mixed use of human-powered vehicles and IndyGo is a great asset to our community, so we want to not only accommodate — but encourage — your decision to combine these two transportation modes.

We Welcome Bicyclists!

Each IndyGo vehicle can accommodate two to three bicycles. All rapid transit vehicles feature a bike stowage area on board.

Check out the following tips for bringing your own pedal power along on an IndyGo ride, or watch the How to Bike and Bus video for more information.

Loading

  1. Make sure the bus stops completely and the operator acknowledges that you intend to load your bike on the bus’s front rack before you step in front of the bus.
  2. If the rack is not already lowered, squeeze the handle on the top of the rack to lower it.
  3. Place your bike in the rack (it tells you where to put your front tire), then rotate the support arm over the front wheel and you’re done.
  4. Remember to remove any loose items or valuables from your bike, including panniers, then board the bus and pay your fare.

For safety reasons, bikes are not allowed inside the bus. If the front bike rack is full, wait for the next bus.

Unloading

  1. Let the operator know you need to remove your bike and exit through the front door. Never step in front of the bus until you are sure the driver sees you.
  2. Rotate the support arm off your front tire and remove your bike.
  3. Fold up the rack if it is empty or simply go on your way!

Bikes at the Transit Center

Please keep in mind the Transit Center does not offer overnight or long-term bike storage, and bikes are not permitted in the Transit Center. If you’re looking for bike storage, check out the YMCA Bike Hub.
