Bikes on Transit

Embrace a greener commute

Cycling to your community CTrain station or bus station is not only a great way to keep healthy but is also good for the environment.

Bikes on CTrain

  • Most CTrain stations have bike racks that you can secure your bike to.
  • Bikes are allowed on CTrains at all times – check out the rules for bringing your bike on a CTrain here.
  • Folding bikes are allowed on CTrains and must be in the folded position and placed in a suitable bag or case at all times.


Bikes on buses

All buses have bike racks, except for our community shuttle buses. This is a positive step toward encouraging Calgarians to use alternative modes of transportation to single-car use. ‘Bike and ride’ commuting offers environmental benefits, such as reduced pollution and traffic congestion, as well as improves the service offering for cyclists who wish to take advantage of this type of transportation.


There is no additional cost to use a bike rack on the bus.


There is space for two bikes on the bike racks that are 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).

  • Max Tire Width: 3.2” standard tire racks and 5.5” fat tire racks
  • Max Wheelbase: 48” standard tire racks and 51” fat tire racks
  • Wheel Diameter: 16”- 29” standard 24”- 29” fat tire racks
  • Max Weight: 75 lbs/34 kgs

Folding and electric bikes

  • Folding bikes are permitted inside the bus, provided they are folded and are not obstructing other passengers.
  • Electric bikes are allowed on bike racks provided they do not exceed the weight limit (75lbs), both tires drop fully into pockets and the support arm can be positioned properly.
  • Gas or diesel operated vehicles are not permitted.

Other biking information

  • Please note, shuttle buses do not have bike racks at this time.
  • Calgary Transit is not responsible for damage caused by or to bicycles on its buses.
