Biking with BBB

Big Blue Bus encourages all of our riders to take advantage of LA County's bike infrastructure! All Big Blue Buses have racks that accommodate most bikes, including kids’ bikes (but not tandems). Each rack can carry two or three bicycles. Space on racks is available on a first-come, first-served basis.

To operate the rack, simply squeeze the handle in the center of the rack to lower and raise it. Place your bike between the grooves, pull the clamp straight out and over the front tire of the bicycle and that’s it!

Here are some more tips that will make your bike and bus trip easy:

  • Bikes (with the exception of folding bikes) are not allowed inside buses, unless the bike rack is full and it's the last trip in service.
  • You may bring your folding bike onto the bus, but remember to fold your bike before the bus arrives. While inside, make sure to keep the aisle clear.
  • When you reach your destination, exit through the front door and let the Operator know that you're going to remove a bike from the rack.
  • Always load/unload your bike by approaching the bus from the curb side and never from the adjacent traffic lane. Passing traffic cannot see you.
  • If there are no other bicycles on the rack, load your bike closest to the bus with handlebars toward the curb. The next bicycle should be loaded with the handlebars facing away from the curb.
  • Remove any items that may interfere with the headlights or other bus equipment, this includes large or bulky items.
  • Bikes cannot be locked onto the rack.
  • Only tires should touch the rack.
  • If you're taking the last bike off the rack, please return the rack to the upright position.
  • If you forget to remove your bike, or if the bus pulls away before you unload it, please note the bus number and route, and call Customer Service at 310-451-5444.

Bicycles are transported at the owner’s risk. The Big Blue Bus is not responsible for lost, stolen or damaged bicycles.
