Bikes on Public Transit

The information below is provided as a courtesy. Please also refer to the Utah Transit Authority about bicycles on transit.

BIKES ON BUSES

Bicycles are allowed on all bus routes except Ski and Paratransit service. UTA buses use a front bicycle rack with two or three bicycle capacity. If the front racks are at capacity, an operator has the option to allow a bicycle in the interior of the bus at his or her discretion. All loading and unloading of bicycles will be done by the bicyclist.

To load your bicycle on the bus, follow the instructions below. These are also printed on the rack.

  1. Lower the rack using the release handle.
  2. Load your bike in the wheel trays.
  3. Secure with hook over the wheel.

When you get off the bus, remind the driver that you need to unload your bike. If the rack is empty, fold it back up.

BIKES ON RAIL

UTA passengers are allowed to bring bicycles on board TRAX, streetcar, and FrontRunner, provided there is room and the bike does not block doors, aisles or stairways. Bicycles must be free of loose dirt. Please walk, do not ride your bicycle on the platform. No fuel-powered vehicles (such as scooters or gas-powered bicycles) are permitted on trains.

  • TRAX: Bicyclists must board through the front and rear doors of each car in the train (excluding the car end directly behind the train operator) look for the bicycle symbol on the door and on the platform. Bicyclists must stand with the bicycle at all times. If the train is too full, you may need to wait for the next train.
  • FrontRunner: Board the bi-level car closest to the locomotive. There are spaces for 12 bicycles to be parked upright on this car. If using any other car, enter through the door with a green bicycle symbol. Place the bicycle under the stairs (room for 4 bicycles). No bikes are allowed in single-level cars.

Bike racks are available at most TRAX and FrontRunner stations. You must provide your own lock.
