Bikes on Buses

History of Bikes on Buses

The Bikes on Buses program started on the Route 9 in 1996, providing a good north/south connection for cyclists. The program was initiated with assistance from Councillor Tooker Gomberg.

In 2002, expansion of the Bikes on Buses program was made possible by the generous donation of 23 bike racks from the Edmonton Bicycle Commuters Society; Alberta Ecotrust, Environment Canada and Health Canada provided funding to the Edmonton Bicycle Commuters. This expansion provided a good east/west connection for cyclists on Routes 1 and 4.

In 2006, bike racks became standard equipment on all newly ordered buses, adding routes 8, 30, 32, 82, 111, 139 and 180. The final push to retrofit all full sized and articulated buses began in 2012. On March 1, 2014, all full sized ETS buses were equipped with bike racks.
