Metro, TANK to offer free rides on Bike to Work Day

Metro, TANK, and Clermont Transportation Connection are offering free rides to bicycle commuters on Bike to Work Day, Thursday, May 20.

Bicycle riders can transport their bicycles on bus bike racks, located on the front of all participating buses.

Each bike rack can accommodate two bicycles. For safety reasons, bicycles can not be brought aboard buses.

"Bicycles and transit are the perfect green partners," said Marilyn Shazor, Metro CEO. "The bike racks are used a lot and we hope the free rides on Bike to Work Day encourage even more bicyclists to try them."

TANK also says that the bike racks are very popular among its riders, according to TANK general manager Andrew Aiello.

"It's a win-win for people who want to commute part of the way on bike and finish the trip on transit," he said.

Bike to Work Day is part of a month-long celebration being headed by local advocacy group Queen City Bike.
