Bicycle Racks
Bike racks may be used on a first-come-first-served basis. Use of the bike rack is free to all riders.

  • Easy-to-use instructions are located on the bike rack.
  • Riders are expected to load and unload their own bikes, but ask your driver for assistance if needed.
  • Remove all loose items before placing your bike in the rack.
  • Load your bike from the CURB side of the bus.
  • When possible, choose a seat where you can see your bike.
  • Don't forget your bike after you get off the bus!
  • Please let the driver know as you exit that you will be removing your bike.
If the rack on the front of the bus is full and you have a bicycle with you, it may be brought onto the bus under the following conditions:

  • Pullman Transit drivers may allow bicycles in the passenger compartment when the bike rack is full, space allows, and when doing so will not jeopardize customer safety.
  • Pullman Transit recommends placing the bicycle in the mobility device securement area if it is available (although mobility device securements may NOT be used to secure a bike).
  • Whether your bicycle is placed in the mobility securement device area or another area of the bus, bicyclists must physically hang onto the bike to ensure its securement throughout their trip.
  • Bicyclists are expected to bring the bicycle on/off the bus using the front door.
How to Ride a Transit Bus

  • Look for your neighborhood bus stop. There are stops in every neighborhood, downtown and on WSU campus. The information on the bus stop sign will let you know when your bus should arrive and what direction it will be traveling. We encourage all riders to be at their bus stop 5 minutes before the scheduled arrival.
  • Make sure we don't pass you by. Every now and then a rider gets left behind because the driver did not see them. Here are some tips to help you get noticed.
    1. Stand visibly at the stop.
    2. Face the bus and nod your head "yes" or wave to the driver.
    3. Step forward when the bus is about 1/2 block away.
    4. If you are in a shelter, walk to the stop as the bus approaches.
  • Respect the rights of other riders. We encourage everyone to ride the bus but everyone must respect the rights of other customers.

ADA Policy and Complaint Form
Title VI Statement
Title VI, 42 U.S.C 2000d et seq, was enacted as part of the landmark Civil rights Act of 1964. It prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, and national origin in programs and activities receiving federal financial assistance. As President John F. Kennedy said in 1963,

“Simple justice requires that public funds to which all taxpayers of all races {colors, and national origins} contribute, not be spent in any fashion which encourages, entrenches, subsidizes, or results in racial {color or national origin} discrimination."

If a recipient of federal assistance is found to have discriminated and the assistance should either initiate fund termination proceedings or refer the matter to the Department of Justice for appropriate legal action. Aggrieved individuals may file administration complaints with the federal agency that provides funds to a recipient, or the individuals may file suit for appropriate relief in federal court. Title VI itself prohibits intentional discrimination. However, most funding agencies have regulations implementing Title VI that prohibit recipient practices that have the effect of discrimination on the basis of race, color, or national origin.
