The cycle friendly bus

lime buses have been especially equipped with secure fastenings for bikes, so you can take your bike on board - as well as the appropriate passenger fare, an additional charge of £2.20 is charged per journey for a bike.

  • Each bus can carry one full sized cycle in the buggy/wheelchair bay; for the safety and comfort of other passengers, bikes must be reasonably clean and in good order
  • To secure your bike, stand your bike upright with the front wheel facing the back of the bus; loop the belt straps around the top of the wheel and through the spokes and click the fastener into place; for safety sake it is advised that you remain with the bike at all times
  • The area used for bikes is shared with passengers using a wheelchair or with children in buggies, so we have to decide who would take priority - if someone using a wheelchair wants to travel when a bike is already on board, our driver will ask the cyclist to give up their space; cyclists are under no obligation to leave the bus, however, if they do, are entitled to a full single fare refund plus £2.20
