Bike racks on buses around Wisconsin

We've updated information about bike racks around Wisconsin and the new program in Milwaukee on our Web site. We answer:
  • How many transit systems in Wisconsin allow bikes on buses?
  • What are the benefits of bike racks on buses?
  • How do I use the bike rack on my bus?
  • When did Milwaukee County begin to offer bike racks on buses?
  • How many people use the Milwaukee bike racks?
  • How much did it cost for Milwaukee County to purchase and install bike racks on its buses?
  • How much does it cost Milwaukee County to maintain the bike racks?
  • How many people need to use the bike racks on Milwaukee buses each year for the program to break even?
Enjoy, and let us know if you have additional questions.

Thanks for your comment! We listed La Crosse on our Web page as one of the providers and are planning to fill out details on more of the state's bikes-on-buses programs on our Web site over the next month or so.

Do you use the La Crosse bus racks? Do you have any specific impressions of the program?
