MST is a popular bike-and-ride option.

All their buses–large and small–have bike racks, with these exceptions:

  • The Rides/ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) buses do not have bike racks.
  • Many of the trolleys do not have bike racks.

For details, see the MST info in this site’s bike-and-ride section.
