Transport for Canberra

Bike and Ride

Bike and Ride is an easy, environmentally friendly and healthy way to use your combine a bike ride with a bus ride to travel around the city. This active travel option will help us manage congestion, reduce energy consumption and pollution and make Canberra a cleaner, greener, better place to live today and into the future.

The ACT Government has committed $700,000 over three years as part of the Transport for Canberra budget package to construct bike and ride facilities along the rapid transport corridor network. The Commonwealth has supported this sustainable transport investment with additional funding of $255,000 in 2010 through the Regional and Local Community Infrastructure Program.

Bike and Ride allows you to lock your bicycle in a bike cage, rail or locker during the day and transfer to a bus for the rest of your trip. You pay a normal bus fare, with no additional charge to park your bike at a Bike and Ride facility. 

There are four types of bike > park > ride facilities available in the ACT:
