Bike racks to be installed on Transport Canberra articulated buses
In April 2017, Transport Canberra received a permit from Roads ACT following the agreement of the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) to deploy bike racks on all 33 articulated buses in our fleet. Transport Canberra is currently in the process of installing the bike racks, and it is expected that this will be completed by the end of June 2017.
As of 1 May 2017, 85% of the Transport Canberra bus fleet are fitted with bike racks. Following the installation of bike racks on all articulated buses by the end of June this year, this percentage will increase to 92% and will provide greater multi-modal Active Travel options for the Canberra community using public transport in the ACT.
The availability of services with bike racks is reported through the real-time NXTBUS system.
