Bike Racks

Buses are equipped with bike racks from May 1 through October 31 only.  Bike racks can accommodate up to 3 bikes max, on a first-come first-served basis.  Class 1 E-bikes are allowed on our bike racks. Class 2 and Class 3 E-bikes are NOT allowed, as these bikes are too heavy for the racks.  Learn how to use Summit Stage bike racks.  Summit Stage buses do not have bike racks over the winter.
