Rack-n-Roll

GoCary Bike Rack


The GoCary Rack-n-Roll program makes riding fixed routes more convenient for bicyclists. Bike racks on each bus can accommodate two-wheeled, single-seat bicycles. Tandems, tricycles and bicycles with wheels less than 16 inches in diameter are not compatible. For information about the Town of Cary’s Bike & Pedestrian Program, please refer to Town of Cary Bicycle Projects.

 

Best practices for bringing a bike on GoCary

 

  • When loading or unloading, maintain as much eye contact with the driver as possible.
     
  • Avoid kneeling or squatting out of the driver’s line of sight. 
     
  • Be sure to load and unload your bicycle toward the curb. 
     
  • When approaching and leaving the bus, be aware of the driver’s blind spots and avoid them. Areas behind the wheels on both sides of the bus are major blind spots. Should you approach the bus from these angles, you will be outside the range of the driver’s mirrors.
     
  • Always make sure the driver sees you and recognizes that you are loading a bicycle before walking in front of the bus. 
     
  • Do not expose yourself to traffic when loading or unloading your bike. The bus is a major vision barrier for motorists. 
     
  • As a safety precaution, once you have disembarked and gained control of your bike, make sure that you wait for the bus to move completely away from the stop before mounting your bike. 
     
  • Wear a safety helmet when riding your bike. For children 16 years and younger, it’s the law.
     
  • Children 12 years old and younger may use the rack but only when accompanied by an adult (age 18 years or older).
     
  • Bicycles are not allowed inside the bus unless both of the slots on the exterior bike rack are full.  The driver may exercise discretion to determine if a bicycle is allowed inside the bus.
     
  • The Town of Cary is not responsible for damages incurred or caused by or to bicycles on GoCary bike racks.
