Bikes on Transit

Most transit agencies in Southern California accommodate bikes on buses and trains. Each agency has rules for bikes on transit, so be sure to check with your transit provider before taking your trip.

You can also take your bike on Metrolink, the region’s commuter train system. If you board with your bike, please use the bicycle latches located on the opposite end from the train’s restroom in each car to secure your bicycle. Motorized or 3-wheel bikes are not allowed, and note there’s only room for two bicycles per train car.
