Bikes on CTrain
Cycling to your community CTrain station is not only a great way to keep healthy but is also good for the environment.
Bikes on buses
We are working to fit all buses with bike racks. As of 2019, bike racks are fitted to almost 350 of our regular sized and articulated buses. We purchase approximately 50 new buses each year, and every new bus has a bike rack installed. Shuttle buses do not have bike racks at this time.
Buses with bike racks are scheduled to operate on routes 1, 9, 14, 20, 38, 43, Max Orange and Max Teal for all 7 days. However, if there are breakdowns or operational issues (especially in winter), there may be occasions where these services are without a bike rack.
Folding bikes are permitted inside the bus, provided they are folded and are not obstructing other passengers.
There is no additional cost to use a bike rack on the bus
There is space for 2 bikes on the bike racks and available on a first come first served basis. Bikes are not allowed inside the bus, so if the racks are full, please wait for the next bus.
Most regular bikes will fit on the racks. Both wheels must fit into the bike rack wheel slots and the support arm/hook must fit over the top of the bike wheel (fenders ok).
Electric bikes are accepted provided they do not exceed the weight limit (55lbs), both tires drop fully into pockets and the support arm can be positioned properly. Gas or diesel operated vehicles are not permitted either. Calgary Transit is not responsible for damage caused by or to bicycles on the buses.
14 of our stations have bike lockers that you can rent for up to a year (minimum of six months), to keep your bikes secure while riding transit.
Here is how you can rent one:
1. Complete a bike locker rental application form.
2. Take the application form to the Customer Service Centre - Bow Parkade with photo ID.
3. Pay for your locker.
