How to Take Bicycles on Our Buses

Instructions for taking your bicycle on a Loudoun County bus vary by bus type, as follows:

Commuter Bus (Large Coach Buses)

  • Complete the Bike on Bus Registration Form.
  • Once approved, Loudoun County will issue you a bike on bus permit card that you will show the bus driver, who will then open up the luggage compartment for you to place your bike on the bus.

Transit-Style Bus

No bus permit card is required. The bicycle racks are located on the front of each of the buses. A maximum of two bikes can be loaded on one bus. If the racks are full, riders will need to wait for the next available bus bike rack. If you are unfamiliar as to how to load a bike on the transit style/local buses, view the short video demonstrating this process.
