Bike and Ride

Capital Transit welcomes you and your bike whether you want to bike and ride to work, school, or just for recreation. You may board with your bike on any Capital Transit bus and at any bus stop outside of downtown Juneau. Bikes are not allowed on the bus between South Franklin Street and the Federal Building. Use your bike to get to and from the nearest bus stop.

  • Loading and unloading bikes is easy and there is no extra cost for bringing your bike.
  • The rack, attached to the front of the bus, holds two bicycles. Simple instructions are posted right on it. Bikes on the rack don’t touch each other, the bus or other vehicles.
  • Each bike can be loaded or unloaded independently. You don’t need to move one bike to reach the other. The rack holds most wheel and frame sizes, including children’s bikes.

Loading your bike

As the bus approaches, have your bike ready to load. Remove water bottles, pumps or any loose items that might fall off. Tell the driver you’re loading your bike. For safety reasons, the driver can’t get off the bus to help you, but he or she can tell you how to use the rack.

  • Lift your bike onto the rack, fitting the wheels into the slots. Each slot is labeled front and rear wheels. Please load your bike in the outside slot first.
  • Raise and release the support arm over the top of the front tire. Make sure the support arm is resting on the tire and not on the fender.
