Mix and Match Transportation Modes to Get Around

bikelifecities.comIt’s easy to forget when you travel by bike that you don’t have to complete or start your trip using the same mode. It’s about choices. So pick the combination of modes that works best for you, from biking to busing, bike share to car share. 

TRY THE BUS

Too tired to conquer the last hill on the way home? Hop on a Metro bus for the first or final mile. Loading your bike on the bus is easy:

1. As the bus approaches, have your bike ready to load from the curb side of the bus.

2. Alert the driver before stepping in front of the bus with your bike. Make sure the driver acknowledges your desire to load.

3. Squeeze the rack handle upwards to release the folded bike rack.

4. Lift your bike onto the tray, fitting the wheels into the slots. Each rack is labeled for front wheel placement.

5. Push in the black knob at the end of the support arm. Pull the support arm all the way out and over the top of the front wheel. The support arm needs to be as close as possible to the bicycle’s frame.

ALL ABOARD—MORE BUSES, MORE OPTIONS, MORE SEATTLE

Thanks to Seattle voters, the city will soon have more Metro transit service than ever before. It’ll be easier to catch a bus in the middle of the day, later at night and on your way to work. New service starts in June! Learn more at Seattle.gov/Transit.

A WINNING COMBO—PRONTO CYCLE SHARE AND CAR SHARING

Seattle is an innovative city full of transportation options. Say you live in Capitol Hill and want to go shopping downtown. No problem. Check out a Pronto bike and sail down the hill. Purchase a few things? Instead of riding back up the hill, use transit or your smartphone to reserve a car share vehicle to help get those bulky goods back home.

The combo of car share, bike share and transit gives you more choices on how you can get around the city. Learn more about Pronto, and visit Car2go.com/en/Seattle or Zipcar.com/Seattle to learn more about car sharing.
