Greater Dayton RTA Bus & Bike

rack & roll2Five Rivers MetroParks is partnering with the Greater Dayton RTA to offer you an opportunity to reduce your commute and your carbon footprint while still participating in Bike to Work Day.

Only on May 15, you can use your bike as a bus pass and ride for free. Ride your bike to a convenient bus stop, load your bike on the bus bike rack and be bussed for free to your desired destination. When you arrive, unload your bike and ride the rest of the way to the Bike to Work Celebration! By combining a bus ride with a bike ride you can easily navigate a challenging or long commute. Drive Less & Live More!

Easy-to-use bike racks are available year-round on all RTA buses, routed specifically to provide bicyclists with convenient transportation to work, local bikeways and universities. Each light-weight rack conveniently holds two bicycles. To learn more, watch a video of the easy loading process.
