Organizers: Transit Authority of Northern Kentucky, Clermont Transportation Connection, Butler County Regional Transit Authority
Cyclists across the Greater Cincinnati region can commute for free on Friday, May 19, thanks to a partnership between Metro, the Transit Authority of Northern Kentucky (TANK), Clermont Transportation Connection (CTC) and Butler County Regional Transit Authority (BCRTA) to celebrate National Bike to Work Day.
The transit organizations will show bicycle commuters just how easy it is to bike and ride by offering free fare on May 19 only for riders who use the easy and convenient racks to store their bicycles while riding the bus.
Bike racks are located on the front of all Metro, TANK, CTC and BCRTA buses and can be used at all bus stops including Metro’s Government Square downtown. Each bike rack accommodates two bikes. For safety reasons, bikes are not allowed on-board buses unless they can be folded and stowed under a seat.
Metro and TANK have been recognized as “Bike Friendly Destinations” for providing advocacy and infrastructure improvements to support bicycling for employees and riders since 2011.
More information, instructions and helpful photos showing how to bike and ride can be found on Metro’s website here and on TANK’s website here.
