This Friday for "Bike to Work Day" Metro Encourages Riders to Bike to Metrobus, Metrorail

Metro encourages bicyclists to ride their bikes and take Metrobus or Metrorail to work on “Bike to Work Day,” this Friday, May 21. The event is sponsored by the Washington Area Bicyclist Association and promotes bicycling as a clean, fun and healthy way to get to work.

Bicyclists who ride to a Metrobus stop and take the bus to work can secure their bikes on racks on the front of any bus. Information on how to use the racks is available at

Many Metrorail stations have facilities for bicycle storage so bicyclists can ride their bicycle to a station, leave it there, and take Metrorail or Metrobus. Storage facilities include free racks or lockers for rent, which are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Metro currently has about 1,600 bicycle racks and an additional 1,300 lockers spread throughout the Metrorail system at most of the 86 Metrorail stations. Bicycles are welcome in the Metrorail system anytime except during weekday rush hours, from 7 to 10 a.m. and 4 to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday.
