Bus Bicycle Racks

Bus bicycle rackUGA Transportation and Parking Services is working to provide bicycle riders with an additional resource to access campus by equipping their bus fleet with new bicycle racks.

In an effort to expand and promote alternative transportation, UGA Transportation and Parking Services partnered with the Office of Sustainability and identified transit bike racks as a way to make accessing campus easier for the individuals choosing to use alternative transportation such as walking, bicycling, carpooling and public transit.

The bicycle racks hold two bicycles at a time and take 15-30 seconds for riders to load and unload their bicycles. These bicycle racks are the same model that the Athens Transit Bus system currently uses which will allow for a seamless transition for riders utilizing both transit systems to access campus.

Please note that Bulldog Bike Share bicycles are not allowed on UGA bus bike racks.
