Bicycle Information

Bikes on Buses Program

If you would like to ride a bus while traveling with your bicycle, you now can do so -- at no additional cost! Metro has installed bike racks on the front of all its buses, providing a convenient way to "bike-and-ride." You may load and unload your bicycle at any Metro bus stop. For further information on Metro's Bike & Ride program, visit their web site or call (206) 553-3000.

For more information about the Seattle Bicycle & Pedestrian Program, call (206) 684-7583.

Use a Helmet When You Ride a Bike - It's the law!

Head injuries cause about three-fourths of the 800-900 deaths resulting from bicycling-related accidents in the U.S. each year. According to a study conducted by the Harborview Injury Prevention and Research Center, helmets that meet ANSI or Snell standards can cut the risk of riders' head injuries by 85%.

For more information, visit the Bicycle Helmet Safety Institute in Washington, D.C.

Remember to Use Your Hand Signals!
