Bike & Ride on Barrie Transit

Bike racks are available on all Barrie Transit buses. They're free, easy to use and have instruction labels to help, but before you use the bike rack please familiarize yourself with the instructions below or included in the brochure (PDF).

Transit staff work to inform riders of service impacts, and keep the public informed about initiatives and projects that support Transit ridership.
