Bikes on Buses

Take your Bike Along for the Ride

Ever take the bus or trolley to your destination and wish you had your bicycle with you? Allow us to introduce you to PSTA’s Bikes on Buses Program. It offers you the convenience of bringing your bike anywhere PSTA travels. Or lets you explore areas you could never get to by bike alone. Easily. Conveniently. Safely. Plus, the PSTA Bikes on Buses program is available on both HART and Pasco County Public Transportation buses, so you can continue your travel into Hillsborough and Pasco Counties. What's most convenient is that you no longer need a permit to load your bike on the bus.Whether you use a bike for transportation or recreation, or to commute to work, the Bikes on Buses Program may be just the ticket. All it takes is a few minutes with a “how-to” video and some simple bike-loading instructions.
