Bike racks are available for use on a first-come, first-served basis. All Sioux City Transit fixed route buses have operating bike racks. Remember, your bike rides for free as our wheels carry your wheels!
Do's and Don'ts
- Racks accomodate wheel size of 16 inches or larger.
- Only non-motorized, two-wheel bikes are allowed. The racks do not accomodate tandems, recumbent, mopeds, motorized bikes, or trailers of any kind. Note: If a trailer can be folded to the size of a child's stroller, it can be brought on board.
- To allow for faster boarding of you and your bike, before the bus arrives at the stop please remove all loose items, including water bottles and air pumps from your bike.
- Load and Unloading:
- For your safety, load and unload the bike from the front or curb side of the bus.
- Load and unload your bike as quickly as possible.
- If someone wants to remove their bike, let them go first before you load yours.
- If the bike rack is full, cyclist must wait for the next bus with an open rack slot to load a bike. Sorry... bikes are not permitted inside the Sioux City Transit buses.
- You must be able to load and unload your bike without assistance.
- Bikes must not be locked to the bus's bike rack.
- You must take your bike with you when getting off of the bus.
Lost & Found
Any claims for a bike left on buses or on SCTS premises (i.e. Martin Luther King Jr. Transportation Center) should be made to SCTS at its administrative offices, 2505 E. 4th St. Sioux City, Iowa 51102 or 279-6405. Property will be held at SCTS for 30 days and "unless rightfully claimed" with the thirty (30) days after being found, all non-perishable property found on buses or on other SCTS premises will be deemed to be abandoned by the owner and will become the property of SCTS, to be disposed of as SCTS determines to be appropriate.
NOTE: SCTS will not take a bus out-of-service for a cyclist to claim their bike or send a SCTS employee to a bus to take the bike off a bus for a cyclist. Furthermore, SCTS has the option to remove a bike left in a rack if owner of bike is not on the bus during any period of transit service operation.
SCTS is not responsible for damages incurred or caused to bikes while on the transit system, at the bus stop, during loading and unloading of the bike. Furthermore, SCTS is not responsible for the cyclist while loading or unloading the bike to the rack, or if the cyclist fails to secure the bike on the rack correctly. Nor is SCTS responsible for bikes that are stolen, left on racks, damaged due to improper handling, or claimed by someone other than the rightful owner.
SCTS drivers cannot leave the driver's seat to assist in the use of the bike racks. By carefully reviewing and following the simple instructions, you will find our racks easy to use.
Enjoy your ride on Sioux City Transit!!
