GRTC has made it easier than ever to ride the bus and ride your bike, all at the same time! All GRTC buses, except coach models, are equipped with front-mounted bicycle racks so cyclists can load their bicycle onto a bus and catch a ride. The racks are easy to use and can accommodate a wide array of bike styles, from a child's version to a fully loaded adult-size bike. This service is free to all riders. Watch a short bike rack tutorial video!
Park 'n Ride the bus into downtown. Read the paper. Catch up on work. Or catch up on sleep. Arrive at your destination ready and relaxed. Transit riders save themselves thousands of dollars a year by opting out of stop-and-go traffic, toll-booths and parking garages by the Express bus service. Park 'N Ride lots are FREE and run along our Express service routes to the downtown Business District, so ride into work, without wearing out yourself or your car.
Park 'N Ride lots are a convenient way to travel downtown. Park n' Ride lots are safe, well lit, and easily accessible. To find the closest Park 'N Ride location near you, click here.
