Taking your bike on the bus

All buses on the Queenstown network have bike racks so you have more options for getting around town – and your bike travels for free.

Good to know:

  • Bike racks can carry up to two bikes at a time.
  • They’re designed for wheels larger than 16” (41cm) in diameter.
  • Let the driver know right away if you have problems with the bike racks.
  • Children’s bikes may be allowed on the bus at the driver’s discretion, and must be securely held by the passenger.


Using the bike rack:

To load:

  1. Let the bus driver know you’re going to load your bike.
  2. Squeeze the bike rack handle up to release.
  3. Lower rack until it is horizontal.
  4. Lift your bike onto rack with the front wheel facing towards the yellow arm.
  5. Fit the wheels into the clearly labelled slots.

Lift the support arm to ‘hook’ over the front wheel to secure the bike.

To unload:

  1. Make sure the bus driver knows you’re going to unload your bike.
  2. Unhook the support arm to free the front wheel.
  3. Lift your bike from the rack.
  4. If no one else is using the rack, squeeze the handle to fold the rack back up. For safety reasons, the bus can’t depart until this is done.
  5. Step away and carry on your journey.

It’s your responsibility to load and unload your bike. For safety reasons, our bus drivers are not able to assist you. Please don’t take it personally when they stay in the bus!
