Bike & Ride is an easy, environmentally friendly and healthy way to combine bike and bus travel. Bike & Ride allows you to lock your bicycle in a bike cage, locker, or on a bike rail during the day and catch an ACTION bus to complete your journey. Another option is to take your bike with you, by using the on-bus bike racks. Regular bus fares apply with no additional charge to secure your bike at a Bike & Ride facility.
A network of Bike & Ride and Park & Ride facilities are located on ACTION Rapid & Xpresso bus routes and at selected group centres to allow easy connections with peak hour bus services.
This active travel option will help us as a community to manage congestion, reduce energy consumption and pollution, and make Canberra a cleaner and greener place to live today and into the future.
Access to these secure shelters is available to MyWay cardholders upon application. Once access has been granted, passengers simply swipe their MyWay card to open the door and can place their bike on one of the racks inside.
Bike lockers are the most secure option when combining bike and bus travel.Lockers must be reserved prior to use, and passengers are required to supply their own lock to ensure the locker remains secure.
Bike rails are installed at over 15 bus stop locations across Canberra, primarily on Blue and Red Rapid routes. Users are required to supply their own lock to secure bikes at these open facilites.
Bike racks are installed on many ACTION buses, allowing up to two passengers to place their bike on the bus for the duration of their journey. Passengers are advised not to lock their bikes on to the bus, and to use the provided hook to ensure it is securely fixed.
Bike cages – Access to the bike cages is available to ACTION passengers who hold a MyWay card. To arrange access, email a request to firstname.lastname@example.org including your MyWay card number and the location of the cage you would like to use. If you have any enquiries about bike cage access, phone the MyWay Administration Office on 6207 7711.
